3Play Media interviewed Sarah Snow, brand ambassador for Glide, about how Glide discovered the opportunity to connect with the deaf and HoH community in this video interview.
Glide is a video messaging app that has nurtured a strong user base among the deaf and hard-of-hearing community, since it facilitates communication by lip-reading and signing.
We’d like to share another video that Sarah Snow created to promote inclusion and understanding around deaf culture.
