We are Ava and we believe total accessibility is possible.

We're a small team from around the world and we're breaking down communication barriers between the deaf & hearing worlds.

Our pillars


It doesn't matter where you're from. Together, we're stronger. It's you & us now.


Ava users are Pioneers. Every day they explore the limits of what's possible in accessibility with us. We are the same. We set an ambitious goal, total accessibility, and to reach it, we need to go where no-one has gone before.


In sign language, communication is direct and respectful. It is authentic. We believe in a culture where everyone speaks their mind, improving accessibility.


We think our product, our business, our company with empathy. We ought to go beyond surface-level interactions, to go beyond barriers.


We get up every morning because we know that our work with technology can have a real impact on millions of lives and fundamentally help to build a better society.

As a team of deaf and hearing folks, we've built Ava the way we needed it.

Amazing people have joined us in our mission to challenge the status quo in accessibility, mobile and speech technologies. Here's who's behind Ava.
