Czech Union of the Deaf
The project idea originated in connection with the adoption of new Act on the communication systems of deaf and deafblind people in 2008 (Act No. 155/1998 Coll., as amended by Act No. 384/2008 Coll.) This law allows the hearing-impaired people to choose a communication system that suits them, inluding of simultaneous transcription of speech (speech to text).
At the time of entry into force of the law there was no one to provide such a service in the Czech Republic.
