ABOUT DEAF TECH FOUNDATION

Creativity Inclusion Innovation

Despite the rapid advancements in technology, the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community continues to face significant barriers in accessing and benefiting from these innovations. Many technologies, educational resources, and professional opportunities are designed with a hearing-centric approach, leaving the Deaf and hard-of-hearing population at a disadvantage. This digital divide not only limits personal and professional growth but also hinders the potential contributions of a diverse and talented group of individuals. At Deaf Tech Foundation, we recognize these challenges and are dedicated to creating a more inclusive technological landscape where everyone has the opportunity to succeed and thrive.
