Dicapta Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to ensure equal access to information for people with hearing and/or visual disabilities. Thanks to the funding of the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR grant number 90IFDV0004-01-00), Dicapta Foundation developed GoCC4All. GoCC4All's overall goal is to enhance socialization, independence and safety of people with deaf-blindness.

During the implementation of GoCC4ALL, we had the guidance of an outstanding Advisory Committee that included representatives from the Helen Keller National Center, the National Center on Deaf-Blindness, the Perkins National Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program (iCanConnect), the Florida and Virgin Islands (FAVI) Deaf-Blind Collaborative, Lighthouse Central Florida and DeafBlind Citizens in Action. Their feedback helped us to guarantee that the unique needs of individuals with deaf-blindness were addressed.
Dicapta Foundation is proud to collaborate with exceptional partners: the research group SoftLab from The University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M), with expertise in accessibility technologies for people with sensory disabilities, and the Helen Keller National Center (HKNC), which helped us to do testing of our technology with users in the deaf-blind community.
