Uber Deaf employment

the percentage of people who are deaf or hard of hearing and who are unemployed stands at around 70 percent.

In the United States, 400,000 people are deaf and another 20 million people are classified as heard of hearing.

Uber has created a number of different technologies to support drivers who are deaf, and to date, 6,000 of them have activated and are driving with a feature in the driver partner app for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. 

Uber has just started a new partnership with the Communication Service for the Deaf (CSD), the largest deaf-led nonprofit in the U.S.
