Being Deaf, we have experienced first hand the challenges of accessing Covid-19 information in Kenya during live break news on TV. We need to educate Deaf kids how to protect themselves from spreading covid-19 and understand how to wash their hands in sign language.

What it does

Covid-19 Statistics and Information in Sign language is the Facebook Messenger that enables both Hearing and Deaf users to ask for the latest statistics of the covid-19 from the world or specific country and to ask for the information of covid-19 in sign languages from countries.

How I built it

Challenges I ran into

Lack of resoruces I need for collecting more information of covid-19 in sign language for everyone in the world.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

As Deaf engineer, I started to research how to retrieve dataset of covid-19 before starting to develop Facebook Messenger on the following day. It works.

What's next for Covid-19 Statistics and Information in Sign Language

  • Getting accurate information of covid-19 from WHO and then translate them into sign language video.
  • Getting the latest news of the covid-19 statistics in sign language for Deaf people in the world to watch.
