New member, knowledge of some ASL

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I'm a new member. I've checked out this place, and it's awesome! I tried to upload a picture but, there to big lol. I'll keep trying. Anyway, I know some ASL. Pretty vague huh, my apologies. Long story short, there was a accident I lost me long term memory, and my short term is iffy. There is a but in there I promise lol. I use to know ASL. For some reason I am connecting with signing. I mean I understand it for the most part. I want to continue at it. I'm hard of hearing and I have Minerese Disease. I'm open to making some friends and chatting. Please know I'm a very patient person, hope you are. 

Thanks for reading and hope to get some replies. 

EM

😊

Hello Mindfullness, welcome to the forum.

I am new as well, and from what I’ve seen this is a fantastic place to ask questions and train on fingerspelling; however, it seems to me that there is not to none fluent ASL signers. Most of the members seems to be beginners. There’s is a lot of ressources to help people to learn better, but I doubt that there is any deaf or HH member with advanced knowledge ready to chat with everyone lol. 

I know enough to understand basic conversations and you?

    • Hello everyone, we are a postgraduate team from Trinity College Dublin attempting to gauge interest in a sign language learning application idea. The app would be similar to Duolingo but built around automatic sign recognition technology, where a user could sign for the app and receive feedback on their gestures legibility. Currently we’re still trying to figure out if an app like this would be of interest to sign language learners or if we’ve completely misjudged the potential audience.
    • salut! my name is vario and i am hearing and currently learning sign language! i am 17 as well it would be nice to meet you!
    • Hello! I am 32 and a Montessori Upper Elementary teacher of 4th-6th graders located outside Seattle, WA.  In college I majored in Sign Language interpreting for about 1.5 years before I realized it wasn't quite the right major for me. I absolutely loved holding conversations in ASL, but I really struggled balancing taking sounds in while simultaneously signing. I later was diagnosed with ADHD and learned more about my brain, and that my brain has a really hard time holding words and messages
    • I tried to connect to the event yesterday and even sent a message to the organizer and this site's administrator to find out how to do so.  I am still waiting for a response.  I was unable to access the event yesterday.  I'm guessing that it's no longer offered and should be removed from the calendar.
