Application Ideas

Limited English Proficiency Assistance

This app would help people access limited english proficiency (LEP) services in a variety of government, medical, and legal settings, and what to do if they are denied these services. With the high number of people in Washington who do not speak English as their primary language or even primary speakers who do not have the language proficiency to understand complex documents, this would help a classically marginalized group obtain access to justice and other important services. There already exists a significant amount of work done in this field via the Internet and brochures, and an app would draw on these pre-existing sources to help reach a broader audience and make the information more accessible.
