Inspiring + Innovative + Inclusive + Integrative
Assess + Research + Technology = Quality Access
WIS is innovating by delivering advanced technologies and constantly re-examining its accessibilities and capabilities with communication access and its processes to ensure that the company is built up with “Ready to Service” capabilities for our customers who are deaf, hard of hearing or have other disabilities or limitations across the Globe.
Empowering customers who are deaf, hard of hearing or have other disabilities or limitations means that they can actively understand and influence their health status. Information is the key to patient empowerment. Without information, children and families cannot engage in meaningful discussions or make thoughtful decisions regarding medical care. Information sharing is a model for patient interaction with the health care system that may significantly improve the care of children and families.
These Hieron and Chabla products focus on information technologies that utilize user-centered design principles and interactive capabilities to facilitate information sharing and to empower children and families. The products include an Application, devices, electronic pediatric personal medical records, customized health information systems, and interactive physician offices with electronic mail (email) and telemedicine capabilities. Ideally, these systems would all be integrated.
Successful implementation of these new technologies will require thoughtful attention and balanced solutions to tensions between information sharing vs security, and curatorship vs censorship. Issues related to access and the digital divide must also be addressed. Acceptance and usability of new technologies is predicated on close collaboration among physicians, researchers in informatics, librarians, educators, and other professionals with expertise in the human-computer interface. Child and family empowerment will be both the driving force and ultimate outcome of information-sharing technologies.
World in Sign, LLC’s vision is an expression of our company’s goal: diversity, equity and inclusion designed with quality access to inspire and focus customers across the globe on a shared future and to reaffirm that together we can meet the challenges and find the solutions without any barrier through technology, languages and education.
Diversity and Inclusion:
Diversity and inclusion are part of WIS’s values at the highest level as it aims to partner with: customers, governments, businesses, universities, organizations… Relationships with all communities are vital to foster better healthcare, better economics, better technological products, better education and training, and better services for our diverse customers around the world.
WIS has high expectations on quality access - Not only do we deliver the best affordable and innovative technologies, equipment and services, we are committed to making sure that our customers continue to have communication access after their service is done. The people who work, volunteer and network with us helps us transform how we design and build our products and how we manage our internal operations.
Innovation will always be at the heart of WIS. Our business has evolved to meet the challenges of a global deaf community regarding healthcare, education, business development, marketing involvement, and so has our approach to communities’ relationships. We encourage quality customer relationships via programs through e-learning opportunities, in person training and after school classes. We invest in and encourage the innovative partnerships and programs that align with our strategic objectives, create value and help build better communities across the world. This includes improving access to global quality learning, programs for the workforce, recruiting programs and skills development to help sustain and support the workplace, the environment and the community.
Ensuring that WIS’s enduring values remain foundational to our work requires a daily commitment from every employee. Our robust ethics and compliance program is focused on integrity, respect, accountability and inclusion—the same values that lead to strong business outcomes.
With a century of innovation under our belt, WIS is committed to inspiring and preparing the next generation of innovators. We are harnessing the natural curiosity of young people through investments, partnerships and volunteerism to show them how education, healthcare, languages, technologies and engineering can help solve real-world problems through E-Learning programs.
Empowerment and Development inclusive of Native Sign Languages:
Despite its facilitating role in creating opportunities for people with disabilities to access human rights, access to assistive technology is limited in many countries. It is therefore promising that the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) addresses this area. A study analyzed the assistive technology content of the CRPD from a basic human rights perspective in order to clarify its limitations and opportunities for formulation of policies and implementation strategies. Data were collected through a content analysis of the CRPD. It is concluded that a non‐discriminatory interpretation of the provisions entitles all people with disabilities to a right to demand available and affordable assistive technology. Ensuring this right is a national as well as an international responsibility.

Chabla, our Application and Platforms Corporate
Chabla is a Mobile Video Interpreting Service for deaf, hard of hearing and other sign language users. Chabla app enables on- demand live interpretation regardless of time or location.
In addition to Chabla's benefits for the customers, the application allows its interpreters to decide their own working hours, as well as location, gives them the opportunity to provide their services internationally and of course offers them compensation accordingly.
Chabla was launched for IOS in November 2016 and in July 2017 the Android version was released. In September 2018 the expansion to spoken language interpretation was released. During 2019, we will expand further into other technology platforms. ”AI Interpreter” will become reality rather sooner than later and it is one of Chabla’s goals in the future.
