Action for Captions
Sound Waves Foundation wants to install live captioning software in every primary, secondary school, college and university in the UK for deaf children and young adults.
Block your ears and watch a clip on the ancient Greeks…..what did you learn?
Subtitles and captions are an integral part of a deaf child's learning.
Help fund the supply of devices installed with speech-to-text captioning to support deaf children at home or in school. We live in a world where most people rely on speech and sound which is why we do not want deaf children to miss a thing.
Our Role Models
How often do you see deaf adults or children in prominent roles?
What about deaf skateboarders, dancers, astrophysicists...?
We want to put deaf adults and children centre stage to celebrate their many contributions made to society. Help us to inspire generations of deaf children and showcase the many amazing talented deaf adults in a wide range of professions and vocations.
BSL Surf Signs
Deaf children find it challenging to participate in mainstream water sports. Sound Waves Foundation wants to make surf, swimming and all things water safe and inclusive for deaf children.
Did you know that 40% of deaf children face difficulty accessing swimming (NDCS). Sound Waves Foundation has been working on producing water safety BSL signs for Hove Surf Life Saving Club for their deaf and hearing participants. These BSL signs can be easily learned and used to benefit all.
