HandsUp is an innovative company offering accessibility services to the deaf and hard-of-hearing, such as sign language interpretation, lip-reading, company and organisation advertisements with videos in sign language and subtitling services. In addition, it offers website design services, so that they are accessible by and user-friendly for the deaf and had-of-hearing.

HandsUp designed the first accessible website in sign language, hands-up.org, where text, articles and updates are transformed into video format with sign language interpretation, provided exclusively by professional interpreters, and subtitles.

Based on well-researched reports, HandsUp operates its new HandsApp, which reshapes accessibility for people with hearing impairments. They may now enjoy culture and tourism on an equal footing as people who can hear.
