Today, one technology company is making a name for itself. It hopes to change the lives of the entire Deaf community. Ryan: “Most Deaf people can’t afford interpreters or other accommodations out there they might prefer.” Ryan Hait-Campbell is the founder of Motion Savvy. They creators of Motion Savvy also created Uni. (guitar music) Video: “What’s this? “Hello! My name is Alex. What’s your name?” The two-way communication device is the first of its kind. It takes ASL and turns it into spoken English, and then spoken English into text. Motion Savvy is one of three companies selected for the Wells Fargo Startup Accelerator. Ryan: “Ahh, it was — it was amazing that 300 other teams and startups with their own ideas and motivations to join — yet we were able — we were able to get ahead of them!” They’ve received money to fund their project and will get guidance on how to continue. Ryan: “Now we’re getting that direct guidance from experts in the industry, so that makes me happy.” Ryan says that their first meeting with Wells Fargo sealed the deal on why they were chosen for the accelerator. Ryan: “Ironically, last year when we had our first meeting with Wells Fargo it was a little bit awkward. Because we didn’t have interpreters at the time.” Ryan’s company is also the first Deaf company in the program and he hopes this inspires others. Ryan: “My hope is that when deaf people look at us, they see that we’re a deaf founded company and that we got into this program and that honestly it isn’t impossible to do these things. You can do anything you want. You just have to put your mind to it.” Motion Savvy is the second company that was chosen for the startup accelerator program. Wells Fargo says they’ll receive the next round of applications this June. They’re hoping that more of the applicants are from international companies.
