Logo for the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf

The International Committee of Sports for the Deaf (ICSD) organizes deaf athletes globally . In other words, they organize the international Deaflympics and other World Deaf Championships. The Deaflympics convenes every four years. During these events, deaf athletes have competed in their sports. They also have become friends with athletes from other countries. ICSD promotes and develops opportunities for sports and competition for deaf athletes globally. They work to create “more and better athletes”.

Some people using screen reading software may have difficulty accessing the ICSD website. For example, images use alternative tags for people who cannot see them. But the two-letter tags may be confusing for people who do not know that “TE” means “tennis” or “CM” means “Mountain Bike”.
