Deaf Awareness Week


SignVideo Celebrates Deaf Awareness Week Launching The UK’s First BSL Business Directory!

SignVideo has launched the UK’s first Deaf British Sign Language (BSL) Business Directory on their app in time for Deaf Awareness Week 2019, with a key difference.

The directory offers Deaf BSL entrepreneurs – free of charge – the opportunity to attract more Deaf BSL customers to their services through a simple click.

Deaf entrepreneurs and tradespeople are now able to list their business on the Signvideo app for free, allowing Deaf people to click-to-call them directly, in BSL, using the SignVideo service.

Business owners do not have to register or hold a paid SignVideo account. All calls are free of charge and their Deaf BSL customers also do not need a SignVideo account to use the service.

The new BSL Business Directory aims to promote and build a new mindset that focuses on the development of a BSL “Ecosystem” concept within the Deaf BSL community.

Jeff McWhinney, Founder and Chairman of SignVideo said:

“We at SignVideo passionately believe in the empowerment of Deaf BSL community. With this in mind, I am proud to announce that SignVideo has enhanced further our app to start the ball rolling on the Deaf BSL ecosystem space by launching a free Business Directory connecting Deaf people who use BSL and those who have their own businesses or run a trade service. If you are looking for a painter, a graphic designer, a gardener, a photographer or a builder, for example, you can just search the SignVideo BSL Business Directory on our app and click to call them!”
