Making Content Accessible
to Sign Language Users

MEET NIKI

Niki, our hyper-realistic sign language avatar (digital human), is responsible for translating a variety of media content such as Video, Audio, or Text into a signed language.  

Niki's high fidelity face and emotional expressions gives her the ability to be fully independent from a human and communicate without any barriers. 

She will be able to preside at the bottom of any screen or on any device, interpreting the spoken language into sign language. 

 

THE TECHNOLOGY

01 / AI

State of the art Artificial Intelligence and Neural Network algorithms used in our processes to drive the automatic translation of a spoken language to Sign Language. 

02 / Avatar

Our hyper-realistic human avatars bridge the communication gaps that exist with low-quality characters. We use the latest methods in graphics design to artistically create a world-class digital person.

03 / Engine

Our engine is the glue that holds everything together: it brings the world of software programs to the real world. It adds the artistic touch required to make our solution the best in the world!
