Sound Off Round 2 is about bringing live captioning to UIKonf  in 2016!

Live captioning for UIKonf is not only going to open up the conference to the deaf community and the hard of hearing, but will be indispensable for many of the attendees for whom English is not their first language.

UIKonf is an independent conference in Berlin, Germany focusing on iOS development and taking place from May 22nd to May 25th. Our own Jeff Watkins and Ashley Nelson-Hornstein will be speaking this year so be sure to say hi if you’re attending!

Captioning for the two days of talks will cost $3,000. We're lucky to have retained White Coat Captioning. So we're sure they'll do a great job.

Help us make UIKonf accessible to as many people as possible!

With your help, Sound Off Round 2 successfully raised the $3,000 needed to bring live captioning to UIKonf. Thank you to everyone who donated, tweeted, and told their friends.

We’re only halfway through the month so we’d like to set two realistic stretch goals:

Stretch Goal One: Fees

For Round 2 we tried GoFundMe and it’s been great. People love being able to track our progress and leave a little message. The one downside is GoFundMe charges a net fee of 7.9%, which we’d appreciate help covering. We had planned to cover this part of the cost out of our operating budget, which is currently our board members’ pockets.

That makes our first stretch goal $3,000/0.92 = $3,260.

Stretch Goal Two: Head Start

We’re still working out the details of Sound Off Round 3, but we expect to be ready by the end of this month or early next month. We’re planning a pair of attendance scholarships to a conference we love and are excited to work with. Anything we raise above and beyond $3,260 will be used as seed money for that campaign. We think we can hit $4,000 if we keep up the pace.
