  2. Hello. I am joining this site because an ASL forum sounds great, and I have a lot of questions which are difficult to answer. I bet it would also be a great place to practice! I am pretty new to signing. As a young kid I knew some because of my aunt, but that was a while ago. I look forward to meeting and chatting with all of you.

  6. Hello I am Chalyse and I am learning ASL because I would like to be able to communicate with Deaf/Hearing impaired. I would like for it to become my second language as well. I know my ABCs pretty well although a few letters still get me and I am learning basic words. Nothing is more helpful though then being able to have others who you can communicate with as well and be able to help you better improve.
  7. Hello @Douglas - Thanks for posting! We are still setting up the video recording aspect of this website and there maybe some performance issues for a little while - we hope to get these resolved soon. Thanks for your patience!
  8. Boy, this video did not turn out right. I wonder why?
  9. Hello, My name is Douglas. I have been deaf for 15 years. I do not know any other deaf people where I live. I know lots of signs, but, am not fluent. I sign more pidgin English than ASL. I have joined this site to learn more ASL, get better at signing and meet new people. What exactly happens when you push the video button? do you see a video screen pop up? I wanted to sign what I just typed, but, it didn't look like my camera turned on.
  10.   Communicating with signs in collegiate sports is one thing, but Stony Brook University athletes took it to another level. Nine football players and one track athlete, enrolled in the University's American Sign Language (ASL) class, welcomed Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf students to the Stony Brook football field and campus. Students from Mill Neck visited and communicated with student athletes after football practice, asking questions and learning about what it’s like to be a Division I athlete.  
  11. Hello @Katy12 - welcome! This site is very nearly ready to be launched - all of the features should now be working so please feel free to spread the word. If you can think of anything you would like added to the site please let me know.
  12. Hi, I'm Katy and am 18 years old and love the concept of sign language. I'm in university and want a second language. I am trying to find someone to help me to be fluent in it.
  13. We have been working really hard over the past year to create a site that will be a community hub for people who are learning and who use American Sign Language. The site is pack full of features specifically for ASL users such as the ability to record video directly into posts. Let us know what you think of the site and let us know if we can add any features that you would find useful. I look forward to hearing from you

  15. You can now create your own animated ASL fingerspelling images using the fingerspelling creator tool. 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. To use this tool click here.
  16. 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.

  18. 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: belalc80@gmail.com
