About Us

Dicapta Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to ensure equal access to information for people with hearing and/or visual disabilities.

The lack of access to information affects profoundly the possibilities of integration of anybody into society. That is why we are passionate about accessibility and why we work with others to support initiatives that improve and increase accessibility and inclusion.

Even though our work benefits the population with sensory disabilities in general, we focus particularly on the Hispanic population with sensory disabilities.

Our Story

Dicapta Foundation is a social enterprise subsidiary of Dicapta Corporation. Dicapta Corporation has been a provider of media accessibility in Spanish since 2004. Thanks to Dicapta Corporation's resources and expertise in the entertainment, media, and educational fields, Dicapta Foundation is able to depend on these capabilities in its efforts to provide, improve, and increase accessibility to the community it serves.

Dicapta Corporation is truly convinced of the importance of providing accessibility as an essential tool for human development, inclusion and education.

Our Approach
