SIV Sign Language


Make your videos more accessible

The World Federation of the Deaf reports that there are about 70 million deaf people who use sign language as their first language or mother tongue in the world today.
According to statistics from the Action on Hearing Loss charity, by 2035 it is estimated that there will be 15.6 million people with hearing loss in the UK – that’s one in five.
These statistics show that catering for Sign Language viewers can open a very large market for your business.

SIV sign language

With our Custom SIV sign language service, you can simply place a picture-in-picture sign language video onto any online video.  The sign language video can be configured to automatically appear and disappear at predefined points in the video or you can make this available to the viewer so they can control if the sign language video can be seen or not, using a button.  In this way, you can ensure the sign language video does not get in the way of the main video and spoil the content or overall viewing experience.
“We can produce a British Sign Language or American Sign Language video that can be merged with your online video using SIV as a picture in picture display to appear when needed.”
Take advantage of the power of interactive videos. You can configure the sign language video to give choice to a viewer.  They can select ASL, BSL or nothing with the simple click of a button.  You can add sign language videos to existing videos or new ones.
The service is so simple, once the sign language video is ready it can be applied to any video almost instantly and the combined video can then shown online using an embed code, so it can be embedded on your website, or as a direct link, with its own page.

Legal consideration

In the UK, the Equality Act 2010 makes it an offense to discriminate against a disabled person on the grounds of their disability in the areas of goods and services.  What this means is a deaf person must have the right to use sign language in any given situation.  For those offering video services, this should be considered when using videos on websites and online. If you can offer the service then why not do it?
SIV is a simple and affordable way to make your videos more accessible.   Try this custom SIV today.
