European Commission selects Significan't of UK to receive e-Inclusion Award

07 Nov 2008

Significan't has received a special award from the European Commission for its SignVideo service. This award recognises their innovative use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and its ability to demolish communication barriers for deaf people through the provision of on-line video sign language interpreting services.


SignVideo interpreting service is one of just 5 shortlisted entries that impressed the judging panel in the Inclusive Public Services category of the prestigious 2008 European e-Inclusion Awards.

By combining the latest video technology with experienced sign language interpreters, SignVideo has opened up immediate access to public services for deaf individuals using a video link.

As a medallist in the Inclusive Public Services category, Significan't has been invited to exhibit their service at the e-Inclusion Ministerial Conference and Exhibition in Vienna from November 30 to December 2, 2008. Overall winners in each category will be announced during the Conference and Exhibition.
