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

    • I can't believe I just found this awesome website .... love everything I see on it!
    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
