The Deaf community is on the verge of a major social breakthrough in the use of video technology for distance communication. Both mobile networks and fixed networks have made significant advances in recent years which have allowed us to trial video telephony solutions for older Deaf people and video information services in BSL. This presentation will describe the projects: Sign 50+ and WISDOM and their practical outcomes. New developments - Deaf Station (www.deafstation.org) and Remote Interpreting services will also be described.
