Looking for ASL help!

Recommended Posts

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 LanguageThe 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
