Samsung Eletrónica Portuguesa now has its customer support service in sign language, becoming the first manufacturer to offer this solution.
The novelty is born from a partnership betweenSamsung Electrónica PortuguesaandZonadvanced , which aimsto expand customer support to consumers with hearing impairments and thus improve their accessibility to all kinds of information about Samsung and its products.
This collaboration, which will take place through Samsung’s customer support service, will offer service and technical support in Portuguese Sign Language (LGP) for the deaf at 9 am10 at 20h10, from Monday to Friday, viaonline
Customer support in sign language
Access to this service is simple: on thewebsiteof Samsung Portugal the customer will find a page with all the information about the service, also identified by the presence of the “Accessibility in LGP” logo symbolizing this service. The consumer, through a video call viaSkype with a Portuguese sign language interpreter, will be in contact with a Samsung assistant prepared to respond to various information – from support technical support, assistance requests, equipment specifications, warranties, among others. The customer can also find a Q&A section on the Samsung website, aimed at answering the most frequently asked questions about this service.
Samsung is thus part of the Portal’s list of partners of the Deaf Citizen, through which you can also consult how to access the service. According to data on the Deaf Citizen Portal, in Portugal the deaf community represents about 20 thousand people with some degree of hearing loss.
By providing technical support in Portuguese sign language, Samsung seeks to ensure “not only customer satisfaction with equipment, but also to have a positive impact on people’s daily lives and , in this particular case, of the deaf community, responding to the diverse needs of consumers and, thus, promoting inclusion, individual and collective development and contributing to a better, more accessible and informed world.”
With this collaboration, Samsung and Zonadvanced hope to continue to advance in the inclusion of this group in daily activities and in improving accessibility in the technological domain for these people. This initiative is part of Samsung’s ‘Technology with Purpose’ corporate program, with which it permanently collaborates with public and private entities in key areas such as education, culture, employability, quality of life and accessibility, breaking barriers through technology and with this at the service of people and with a positive impact on their lives.
