L&T introduces mobile app for people with hearing impairment

Infrastructure major Larsen & Toubro has unveiled a mobile app, DEF-ISL, for people with hearing impairment in order to make the learning of sign language easy for them.

L&T said in a statement, "Packed with over 5,000 easy-to-understand signs and phrases, in-built videos, illustrations, the easy-to-navigate app can be used both by adults and children, who are hearing impaired."

"As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility activities, L&T in association with the Deaf Enabled Foundation (DEF) launched an Indian Sign Language (ISL) mobile app - DEF-ISL. The app makes learning of sign language easy, accessible and interesting," it added.

The DEF-ISL App is also providing an opportunity to those without hearing problems to learn sign language and thereby communicate with the hearing impaired, more effectively.

S N Subrahmanyan, CEO & MD, L&T, said, "L&T has taken digitization to the next level by integrating digital technologies into our day-to-day business. The launch of the DEF-ISL App is a small but definitive step towards bringing the fruits of digitization to help the hearing impaired live a better life."

Hari Hara Kumar, General Secretary & Director, Board of DEF, further stated, "India has the highest population of hearing impaired people in the world, numbering 18 million. Only 0.25 per cent of these numbers presently have access to bilingual education where knowledge of sign language is primary and that of a local language."
