Problem

11 million people are deaf or hard of hearing. Yet, British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters are incredibly rare.

Insight

Thanks to smartphones and social media, we use sign language all the time without even realising it.

Idea

Get the hearing community to learn basic BSL by creating a keyboard made entirely out of sign language hand emojis.

SILENT ESCAPE ROOMS

We'll partner with independent escape room companies to create the world's first Silent Escape Room. Participants must complete every task wearing noise cancelling headphones - and solve all the clues using our keyboard.
