disability innovation

GoVoBo, a project by Gallaudet and AppTek, was chosen for Verizon’s Forward for Good Accelerator disability product cohort. The Verizon Forward for Good Accelerator is part of Verizon’s plan to support start-ups that are developing solutions leveraging technology to drive meaningful impact. This year’s cohort focuses on disability innovation and how technology can drive greater inclusion and equity. Read the announcement from Verizon.

Gallaudet partnered with AppTek to develop an application, GoBoVo, which is a universal captioning application for the deaf and hard of hearing community that can be personalized to each user’s needs in more than 20 languages. This project is led by two Gallaudet professors, Dr. Christian Vogler and Dr. Patrick Boudreaux, and a Gallaudet student, Ms. Molly Feanny.
