KUDO Added Sign Language to its Meeting Platform

KUDO a cloud-based solution for multilingual meetings and live events, has added Sign Language to its meeting platform.

The platform, which allowed users to follow meetings with real-time interpretation in a language of their choosing, is now adding sign language for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The language selection is done through one same dropdown menu on the KUDO app or web application. A video then pops up on the screen with the half-body image of a professional sign language interpreter in action. “The solution is portable: it works on any smartphone, tablet or computer”, explains Parham Akhavan, co-founder and VP of Products & Engineering. “Interpreters and participants can be onsite or remotely located, anywhere in the world.”

“We just crossed another threshold and bridged a huge gap”, says Fardad Zabetian, KUDO’s founder and CEO.

Ewandro Magalhaes, KUDO’s VP of Communications, equates the new sign language feature with “increased visibility and global employability to a new class of interpreters.” KUDO maintains a roster of 1,000+ pre-certified interpreters in virtually any language in spoken as well as signed languages.
