There are 32 million deaf children in the world. Many struggle to read, because they can’t learn letters phonetically. We created StorySign to help change that, and show the power of Huawei’s smartphone AI. A revolutionary free app which takes words from books and turns them into sign language, StorySign helps deaf children and their parents read and sign together. Using the most advanced signing avatar ever designed, supported by 11 deaf charities, and available in 12 sign languages, we achieved a reach of 1.5 billion. Most importantly, 50,000 books have been opened through the app so far.
