Worum geht es?

The social enterprise Transkript online provides simultaneous speech transcription and sign language interpreting services to the hearing-impaired and successfully employs blind fast typists. This introduces a model of mutual support for two groups of individuals with severe sensory impairments: The blind received employment in a modern field, as they possess outstanding prerequisites for it, while the deaf can communicate equally and with dignity in many everyday scenarios thanks to their work. This contributes to social integration and increases quality of life for both groups.
