Build a new Squarespace plugin for Deaf people

Recommended Posts

Good day,

I'm Michael Heuberger, a Deaf programmer from New Zealand, and have developed a WordPress plugin to support Sign Language in web forms. It's so wonderful. With this plugin, you can add a video input inside any web form. Like that, Deaf people can submit forms in Sign Language, which improves accessibility greatly. See:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/videomail-for-ninja-forms/

I'd like to do the same for your popular Squarespace CMS. Imagine contact forms or order forms where Deaf people can fill out in their native language, namely Sign Language. I bet it will increase sales and customer satisfaction.

Do you think you could forward this email to any Squarespace developer who might be interested in this little project? It will do good for Deaf people and much more.

I would help to develop together, but have zero experience Squarespace. I'd need help during the early phase, on how to lay out a foundation, to test it locally, to build and to release it.

Many thanks :)

Cheers,
Michael

As someone who is HoH and will eventually fall into the Deaf world I love this idea. As I'm learning sign language I'm also learning that it always left out in the business world. Well, not always but it sure does feel like it sometimes.

Great @sayreambrosio, do you have experience developing Squarespace plugins? If so, would you be keen to join this little project?

I don't have experience with developing but I do have experience with captioning, writing, and marketing. I'll help in any way that I can. Just let me know if any of that will be helpful.

Hello,

I'm deeply committed to promoting inclusivity and accessibility in my work. I specialize in designing virtual events that prioritize these values by incorporating features like sign language interpretation and simultaneous translation captioning through Wordly. I'm interested in exploring the availability of a plugin specifically designed for Squarespace that can further enhance the accessibility and inclusivity of my websites.
