Uber's new feature in the US teaches sign language to riders
October 1, 2017
Uber has added a new feature to its app to support its deaf and hard of hearing drivers.
The new feature will show up a card in the feed of the app when a rider has a deaf or hard of hearing driver.
This will give riders the option to learn some basic words and phrases in American Sign Language (ASL).
The rider can select basic greeting like 'Hello' and 'Thank you', or learn the letters to spell out their name so they can confirm it to the driver.
It's a useful and thoughtful tool that will help Uber's team of deaf drivers.
