SnapTerp is an app which was designed for Deaf and Hard of Hearing people in the UK. The app is free. Deaf people and sign language interpreters download the app and register for the service.
SnapTerp quickly finds available British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters who are nearby on the day and time the Deaf user chooses. SnapTerp gives you full control of the decision over which interpreter you hire. Deaf users of SnapTerp must be at least 16 years old to register.
SnapTerp offers interpreters opportunity and flexibility. SnapTerp is especially useful for last-minute bookings. Interpreters will find it advantageous for filling work schedules on top of half-days of work, assignments that finish early, or cancellations.
GPS enables interpreters to see how close they are to the requested location and calculate approximate travel time. Interpreters must be at least 18 years old to register, and can be screened by qualifications held.
We are a Deaf-founded, Deaf-led company based in London. We are committed to communication access for the Deaf community.
Moty Allshever is the founder of Solutions for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (SDHH). His conviction that "technology has improved Deaf lives, but not access” led him to create SnapTerp.
Radek "Ray" is an IT person always seeking for the latest with the frenzied technology world, always catching up with the latest on the market. When he is not too wired or laptop/mobile bound, he loves kiteboarding, snowboarding, and even enjoys an impromptu football match. He is an avid programmer and is always creating more advanced websites and taking big or small projects.
Together, Moty and Radek "Ray" have been researching the problem of inconvenient interpreter bookings for Deaf people in the UK for the past two years. Radek’s advanced technical savvy (he started programming at the age of 12!) led him to the gap in the market for mobile interpreter bookings. Add this to Moty’s belief in apps as the driving force of modern life and the frustration he often experienced when left without an interpreter, and SnapTerp was born.
