Sign Speak is a technology company seeking to bridge the communication divide for the 48 million Deaf and Hard of Hearing (D/HH) individuals in the United States. Its technology tracks American Sign Language (ASL) users as they sign with a camera on a computing device and transcribes and translates in real time to facilitate conversation with someone who only speaks English. It can also translate and transcribe back into ASL. The Sign Speak founding team includes a Deaf software engineer and has developed solutions for websites, in-person contact, and automated environments. BII Fund II invested in the company in 2023, and made a follow-on investment in 2024.
