By developing accessible communications for everyone regardless of their abilities, Dicapta focuses on ensuring that media, entertainment, and culture are widely available and accessible for people with sensory disabilities, and Latinos in the U.S.
Since 2005, we at Dicapta have been proudly honored with grants from the United States Department of Education and the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
Latino is our native language
"The U.S. Latino population reached 62.1 million in 2020, up from 50.5 million in 2010." Pew Research Center, 2021.
Considering that in 2020 Latinos were the 19% of the U.S. population and that the incidence of disabilities in this community is increasing faster than in other races, we at Dicapta concentrate our efforts on serving the specific needs of Latinos with disabilities.
Since its creation and continuously, Dicapta has focused its efforts on developing technological tools that allow the creation of accessibility elements more effectively and efficiently to guarantee access to education, culture, and information for people with sensory disabilities.
