11 million people across the UK suffer with severe hearing loss
Citroen has announced that it will be offering customers visiting its retail sites and aftersales departments the option to communicate with British Sign Language, becoming the first car manufacturer in the UK to do so.
With more than 11 million deaf and hard of hearing people across the UK, Citroen has teamed up with SignLive to deliver a video relay service across its sales and aftersales network. The SignLive system allows deaf and hard of hearing people to communicate using British Sign Language via a live video feed that is linked to a fully qualified interpreter.
Citroen has also announced that it will enhance accessibility for the deaf community through BSL implementation across its UK advertising.
