Hello!!

I'm Katie!
A long time ago, may be three years ago, I was involved in an interpreting program. But I realized that the program was not a good fit for me personally. I stepped down, transferred schools, and I actually just graduated from the University of Redlands in California.

Now I want more practice with sign because my skills have suffered a lot from not practicing; it has been a long time since I've signed with anyone who also knows ASL. So I'm really excited to meet ASL students, Deaf,  and other members of the signing community.

Thanks!!

Hi Katie! 

I am hard of hearing, but have never been pushed by anyone to learn to sign, so never did. My hearing though seems to just continue to get worse, so I'm pushing myself. I would love someone to practice with! 

I am in the beginners stage, and only know a handful of signs, can have short conversations depending on the topic. 

I am thinking of starting a club at Job Corps, where I'm studying, and think that this kind of video chat site would be a good idea to help others learn also. 

Give me a shout out of you're interested in chatting or signing.  :)

Have a great day!

Hi,

I hope you're doing well. I'm Celina Collot, Project Manager at Collot Baca Subtitling (www.collotbaca-subs.com). I'm contacting you because we have a project for translating several hours of interviews spoken in American Sign Language into English, and we would like to know if you'd be available and interested in taking it. There may also be some dialogue in spoken English, which we need transcribed as well.

We need the dialogues to be timecoded and the speakers to be identified. This will be done in our own software, which is specialized for creating scripts. We will provide proper training for this, of course.

The available rate is $5 USD per minute of video content. The subject of the interviews is deaf people talking about their lives.

At the moment we have 3 videos, each one about 14 minutes in duration, and need them all by next Friday November 1st, 18:00 CEST. These three videos in particular consist on young people chatting in a bar.

Should you be interested in taking one or more of the videos, please feel free to send us your CV at [email protected]

I look forward to your reply.

Regards,
 

Celina Collot

    • Dear  for the  Deaf   
    • Hi!  I live in Jasper, Alabama and I am a preacher wanting to work in deaf ministry.  I myself am hard of hearing and am progressively going deaf.  I grew up with neighbors who were deaf and taught me to sign a little, then my cousin moved back home from Talladega School for the deaf and she helped me, but I left it for a long time.  I have been studying for a year now and I desperately need someone to video chat with so that I can go further.  I look forward to talking to you all, thank you.
    • I've been learning on my own for a few months as work permits....stopped for awhile, and back at it now with determination to complete ASL3 this year...I'm currently finishing Unit 2 of ASL 1. :)  Mostly using ASLTC and supporting with handpseak and signingsavvy. Following HandsUpSD, ASLStore, and DeafiningASL on Insta. Super lucky to have met an Auslan interpreter online who is now learning ASL (and already streets ahead of me!), so I get some practice and tips from her. Have a great day everyone! 
    • Alternatively, it seems as if we could send videos back and forth on this platform. i've done that before with an app called Marco Polo as well. You can find me on there @kylbrdfrd
