The First Artificial Human Who Understands Italian Sign Language (LIS)

The new revolution in Digital Accessibility, for a more accessible and inclusive web.

In Italy, the Deaf community using LIS comprises approximately 40,000 people.

Why an avatar that understands LIS?

Because it allows deaf users to communicate without barriers with organizations and companies. Thus, the first Artificial Human capable of understanding and producing Italian Sign Language in real-time was born.

Make your services:


Break down barriers and make your services and information accessible to the community, leaving no one behind.


Deaf users can activate their cameras and start signing. The Artificial Human will understand their requests, generating appropriate real-time responses in LIS.


Support the Action Plan of the 2030 Agenda by promoting a digital revolution that enhances service inclusivity and accessibility.
