You can change the speed of the animation.  The animated gifs can be posted on Facebook as American Sign Language messages for your friends.  They can also be downloaded, or embedded on other websites.

    • A great feature that we have recently added is the ability to record a video into your post directly from your webcam or mobile device - and it's really easy!

      All you need to do is click on the red icon on the right hand side of the toolbar when you are writing your post.

    • Hello!  My name is Belal. I’m a Biologist/Software Developer based between the UK and Germany and I'm just starting to learn American Sign Language. I wanted to reach out to the deaf/hearing impaired community about a sign language project I’m working on for my computer science graduate course. The main aim is translating American Sign Language from video/images into text. It's a bit like Google Translate but only for really basic American Sign Language. The idea is to make this tool freely available on a website or smartphone, so non-signers can: (i) understand basic ASL (ii) learn & practice basic ASL (my main motivation!) It would be really great to get input from the community to find out what is useful for signers when communicating with non-signers in daily life. I would also like to collect some more video examples of basic phrases to improve the tool. Please get in touch if you're interested or have any questions Best regards Belal e-mail: [email protected]
