Mission Statement

Grafeas Group, a registered nonprofit, provides a framework for crowd-sourcing accessible text-based content for all Internet users, regardless of disability, access devices, or data restrictions.

About

There is a lot of content on the internet that is inaccessible to those with visual restrictions, no data plan, or otherwise an inability to load content. Much of that content is hidden inside images — images that a phone with low data cannot load or assistive screen reading technology cannot interpret. We are pioneering a system for locating this content and passing it to volunteers to create pure text representations so that everyone can access it.

This system, so far, has been deployed on Reddit.com under the subreddit /r/TranscribersOfReddit and features an innovative use of gamification and volunteerism to engage users and improve communities. Starting with just two people in April of 2017, over 620 volunteers have transcribed roughly 12,200 pieces of content in the following eight months. We currently serve a combined digital population of approximately one million Reddit subscribers.

Your support allows us to keep the servers running, the developers caffeinated, and allow our staff to continue outreach efforts to the places that need our work the most.
