Breaking Barriers with our AI Sign Language Translator

Welcome to Signapse! We are so pleased that you found us. I am a synthetic signer. I was built to work with you to turn your words into sign language quickly and with no fuss.

We have developed real-time sign language translator software

We are a team of Deaf and hearing people; entrepreneurs, engineers, and researchers. We build artificial intelligence solutions for clients who want access to sign language translation and interpretation. Announcements in public spaces, websites and broadcast media can be inaccessible if you are Deaf and struggle to understand audio announcements. As sign language is the first language for most Deaf people, even written text is often inaccessible due to the difficulty of learning a written language without hearing the sounds. It is our job to make sure your organisation provides great access for Deaf people.

How does it work?

Meet our digital signers

You will recognise their faces;
these are Marcel and Mia.

When the content is translated into sign language, they will be who you see. They reside at the bottom of the page, translating audio, text, and video for our users. All of our generated videos are photo-realistic, with appearances based off actual video footage of translators who are compensated each time their image is used commercially. More detail on our photo-realism technology can be see in this article.

If you would like to be part of this small but perfect team of signers, please get in touch. 

What are we developing?

Providing a sign language translation of written website text. Working with project partners, Microlink and national banks, we use Signapse's pioneering technology to provide accessibility to an audience of up to 80,000 Deaf people. We will be ensuring that the needs of sign language users are front and center in this project.

Providing a synthetic signer for use in broadcast media platforms. Driven by a human interpreter signing from home, our technology reduces the production cost, provides a consistent signer appearance, and enables anonymisation for the interpreter. 

Get involved with us

We are seeking forward-thinking clients that aim to build the next generation of access for sign language users. We value working with those who want to be a part of the future of equality, that are commercially astute and able to campaign and effect change from within their organisation.

If you would like to transform accessibility for sign language users at your business, please contact us.


We share values; peerless quality of service and clarity of vision that includes cultural and linguistic ownership of sign by the Deaf Community. Current organisation partnerships in the UK help us in working toward the common cause.
