We at SyncWords believe in embracing the values of Inclusivity and Accessibility in everything that we do. From our global workforce to the range of products and features in our suite of solutions for the captioning industry, we take pride in living those values with all we do. In co-founder Ashish Shah’s words: “Inclusion is an organizational effort and practice in which different groups or individuals having different backgrounds are culturally and socially accepted and welcomed, and equally treated.”
Proud to Partner with World Ovarian Cancer Coalition
The World Ovarian Cancer Coalition has a Global Partner Meeting coming up just around the corner. WOCC is a non-profit organization, which was formally established in 2016, with a global mission to give every woman living with ovarian cancer the best shot she can get at survival without compromising on the quality of life. We are the captioning partner for the 2021 Global Partner Meeting, a virtual event to keep their mission going strong even if we are in the midst of a pandemic.
During this virtual summit, they will be sharing the latest clinical updates and announcing the launch of a study in low and middle-income countries.
Clara MacKay, CEO, World Ovarian Cancer Coalitions is excited about this partnership as well. In her words: “As a global organization, it’s essential that we are able to provide our member organizations with access to translations that are immediate and high quality. Our Syncwords partnership has meant that our inaugural meeting for our global network is accessible to many more organizations than we thought possible”.
SyncWords’ Core Values
More than 20 million people are living with disabilities in the United States alone. And inclusion is not just a global conversation currently; it is also at the heart of every organization’s effort to embrace diversity in their culture. These efforts pave the way for a massive cultural shift and help each organization gear up for challenges ahead. They also lay the foundation for future conversations that revolve around human diversity and strength.
We also recently sponsored a non-obvious diversity summit, in which we made a case for Accessibility through captioning. You can watch the full interview with summit host Rohit Bhargava and SyncWords’ VP Giovanni Galvez here, where they have a freewheeling chat that runs the gamut from captioning to – you guessed it – Accessibility.
Every product that we come out with speaks to these values. We have a global workforce that is proficient not just in technological know-how but also speaks multiple languages, and works in multiple time zones. LanguageSync, our translation engine, has a library of over 100 languages to cater to more people worldwide because the widest comprehension of every event that we caption matters to us. Our captions themselves are designed with the best-of UX principles to enhance the experience of all events for the hard-of-hearing.
Giovanni Galvez, VP of business development for Syncwords stated that: “After working in the TV closed captioning field for over 20 years, we have seen a huge demand to add live closed captioning and live translation to virtual events. Every virtual conference should provide this level of accessibility for all attendees.”
Every live event needs captions. As WOCC prepares to have this critical conversation virtually, we are proud -- and humbled -- to have been chosen as their captioning partner. We wish them every success and look forward to global discussions around inclusivity that this partnership will galvanize.
About World Ovarian Cancer Coalition:
The World Ovarian Cancer Coalition builds on the significant impact of the annual flagship ovarian cancer awareness campaign, World Ovarian Cancer Day, which started in 2013.
