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

    • My name is Kylie and I am a sign language student that is seeking some new friends to sign with and some more practice for my major. I am ITP (interpreter program) intended and would love to have some conversations and get to know some new people interested in the same thing! I am in ASL 5, so technically my sophomore year of signing and will be getting screened to be in the program in May! Very nervous but looking forward to learning and improving. Nice to meet you all! Happy signing!
    • Hey everyone sorry I haven't been on for awhile but i am back on here I'm looking for new friends to sign with if you want to chat In asl send me a message on here 
    • Hi - I am happy to send video messages with anyone on Glide - My Glide ID is aqmdesx.  I am a beginner, so right now this is the best way for me because I can play all/part of your video messages back over and over until I can figure it out in order to respond!  But signing slowly is also greatly appreciated!  Feel free to add me on Glide and send a message.
    • hello, I would be more than happy to practice. Please get back to me as soon as you can
