The Special Envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General on Disability and Accessibility acknowledges Visualfy's work and congratulates them.

I just met the Visualfy app and I want to congratulate you for so valuable tool for people with hearing and visual impairment.

In my capacity of Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations on Disability and Accessibility I have been insisting that ICT have to devote to caring for people with disabilities because they have been forgotten among the forgotten and they have waited too long already to be taken into account in all: public policies, basic services, social organizations and so on.

Visualfy incorporates an extra aspect in this call for science and supportive technology, which is to involve the same people with disabilities throughout the process, from research to the release and marketing.

I agree absolutely with you in that "convert barriers in quarries to build a better future for young people" and I'm excited the interest and dedication they are putting in train new generations of deaf in an inclusive world.

I hope that Visualfy can soon be downloaded from any platform and I would like to have more contact with you to learn closely about not only the scope of the application but Fusió d'Arts, the core of Visualfy.

My supportive hug goes to all the beautiful team that is crystallizing the dream of inclusion.

Milestones achieved

In five months Visualfy had 5000 downloads in 122 countries.

In just five months we had more than 5,000 downloads in 122 countries .

This made us think and start to analyze the competition, having meetings with associations of deaf and users interested in the idea.

We realized that adapting the Smartphone seemed interesting for them but what they really wanted was to improve their quality of life and safety within their homes. Therefore we decided to create our "Deaf Smart Space", a pioneering system that collects sound information from the environment and sends it to our Smartphone or Wearable through visual or sensory signals.

So we can send an alert to the user lighting up his mobile screen, with a green colour when the doorbell rings, yellow when the baby cries or red if the fire alarm sounds.

We also whare the experience with Tu Marca Blanca and Aitana Star, and with the latter we continue having a close relationship.


Milestones achieved

It all started in the summer of 2013, at that then we were filming the short film called Identidad, for which we have received various awards in several countries. In one of the meetings, my phone vibrated on the table and a deaf person alerted me that they were calling me. By saying that it was a message, not a call, he asked me how I knew it without even looking and I told him that I had set up a different sound for each notification.

After several years working side by side with deaf people, we realized that there are endless needs to cover and technology can help us solve it.

Hearing people tend to have a sound for each notification, Facebook has a sound, WhatsApp has another or a different ringtone for each contact on the agenda. So we decided to create Visualfy, with this app, deaf people could set up their Smartphone screen so it glows green with three short vibrations when a WhatsApp message is received, or blue with a long vibration when a Facebook notification appears and show it in the entire screen. In addition both the APP and the web are adapted to any means of communication, either subtitles, audio or Sign Language.

On November 5, 2013, we publish on Facebook the presentation of the Visualfy APP that adapts notifications we receive daily on our Smartphones.


2013

2013 was one of the most complicated years for our welfare state, we see that we lose fundamental rights day by day and one of the groups most affected by the cuts has been people with functional diversity.

The reality in which we live together with our experience has prompted us to gather a group of professionals both deaf and hearing in order to create a project capable of breaking down social barriers, capable of giving way to a new revolution.

That is why in November 2013 we introduced Visualfy, the first app created by deaf and hearing capable of giving accessibility to notifications of mobile terminals and tablets.

But Visualfy is not meant to be one more app, it aims to teach society that the affected ones can take new paths that open doors to a future of higher quality.

That is why we need your collaboration, with the help of all we can make this project a reality, do not wait any longer and join the revolution.
