Due to the social impact and relevance of the same, quite number of print and electronic media publicized this application and its functioning.

The app uses advanced algorithms to translate text, audio, or documents into Indian Sign Language Animations, which can be easily understood by the hearing impaired. What sets Sign Companion apart from other translation apps is its ability to translate queries in real-time, making it easier for people to communicate with the hearing-impaired. The app is user-friendly and can be used by anyone, even if they are not familiar with Sign Language.

The creators have made their app ‘Sign Companion’ available to the public for free on the Google Play Store, recognizing the importance of providing a tool that can make a significant difference in the lives of the hearing-impaired. This app has the potential to change the way people communicate with the hearing impaired and make their lives easier.
