NBDC announces video conferencing pilot project with deaf Nunavummiut

Posted on: 10-April-2013

Participants in six Nunavut communities, Ottawa and Montreal took part in an NBDC-sponsored pilot project to test how videoconferencing technologies can facilitate communication for deaf Nunavummiut. The pilot used the MeetOnline videoconferencing service and demonstrated that, with access to videoconferencing tools such as the video phone used in this pilot, deaf Nunavummiut can enjoy the same communication experiences as those people who are able to hear. Making videoconferencing technologies accessible to deaf Nunavummiut can contribute to their full social inclusion in Nunavut society and indeed Canadian society.
