TOND - Tlumočník očima neslyšícího dítěte
How to convey crucially important but sort of dry information to children with hearing disability in entertaining way? What about creating a game for them in which they can learn useful information, while playing, and having opportunity to win a LEGO building kit. We have built (web)town for kids, in which they can learn everything about the sign language interpreter profession by experiencing real life situations set to our town. Children are strongly encouraged to be more independent when arranging new identity card or driving licence and explained all necessary procedures and rules they need to know when arranging sign language interpreter.
Problem to solve
To make children with hearing disability familiar with rules of Interpreting code and their legal rights and also to encourage children to be more independent in common life situations.
How we solved it
For children with hearing disability, written language is second language next to the sign language which is their mother language. Challenging task was ro create the content only in visual form - illustrations, games, videos. We kept web accessible also for audience with no hearing disability. Each video has subtitles and all the tool tips, buttons and forms have written version. Contributions to discussion can be entered either as written comment or as video.
Projekt přinesl velký ohlas v komunitě neslyšících. Tlumočníci a učitelé z něj čerpají obsah, který není jinak na internetu dostupný.
