Act of April 4, 2019, on digital accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public entities. Certainly, each of us knows its content and is aware of what it obliges us to do. As individuals, institutions or private companies dealing with accessibility, we know how much effort is required to ensure it for everyone – from children to the elderly or the disabled. The group of people for whom we care about availability is really wide, and meeting their needs and expectations is not easy. From here, we would like to present you a solution that has been under development for over two years. As a Foundation, we focus mainly on the Deaf and hearing impaired,. Nevertheless, over the years of cooperation with various institutions, offices, ministries or even the Chancellery of the Prime Minister and President, we have gained experience and learned the main obstacles to the availability of virtually all excluded groups. 

Counteracting them, we wanted our experience and observations to find their embodiment in solving these problems. 

WCAG PLAYER ensures accessibility of the displayed material to everyone, through: 

  • Sign language interpreter with the ability to choose its location and size on the screen; 
  • Audio description (AD) available in 75 languages ​​*; 
  • Subtitles where you can choose and set: colour, transparency, scale, font size, character border styles, background colour, background transparency, window colour and transparency; 
  • translations available in 75 languages. 

In connection with the obligation resulting from the Act of April 4, 2019, on digital accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public entities, we present a solution dedicated to:

  • government administration, 
  • local government units, 
  • public finance sector units,
  • business.

Editing of video materials 

If the material is to be available, it means that it should have a sign language interpreter and subtitles that help not only the deaf but also the hearing impaired, seniors or people learning Polish. The available material should also have an audio description. Together with partners who devote themselves to other fields, supporting people with other disabilities, we can comprehensively prepare fully accessible material.

We organize various workshops for deaf people. These are workshops, incl. in learning Polish in reading and writing, tutoring in any subject. We also train “soft” skills – savoir vivre, interpersonal communication, self-presentation. We also want to actively help the labour market. We support knowledge about employee rights, self-employment, and the opportunities offered by the labour market. We conduct workshops on specific technical skills that allow you to acquire your dream profession. 

In contrast to the aforementioned sign language training, we can offer workshops for very thematically specific groups of participants: for parents of deaf or hard of hearing children, for teachers, for people working with deaf people, for people who can and must contact signing persons, e.g. customer service employees, employees of shops, restaurants, service points, etc. We also invite you to consult us.
