Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2011
    This description of Michaela Nachtrab's work was prepared when Michaela Nachtrab was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
    Michaela Nachtrab envisions a society in which accessibility for hearing disabled and deaf citizens is the norm rather than the exception. This means seamless communication in educational and professional environments as well as access to information, events, and all kinds of media. Michaela introduced VerbaVoice as a platform to jumpstart a self-organized community of deaf and hard of hearing that can take an active role in advancing accessibility and their own participation in society.
