Great people make great companies.


ProDeaf was born out of the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE) from a group project of computer science students, in which there was a deaf student; the group struggled to communicate well. True story! Together the deaf and hearing students developed a global solution to their small communication issue. And so Proativa Soluções was born, thanks to partnerships with and support from Wayra Brasil - Telefônica, Microsoft, Sebrae e CNPq.


Our team is made up of programmers, linguists, designers, translators, both hearing and deaf. We have been collaborating on various deaf-related research projects, experiments, and solutions to this linguistic challenge since 2010.
