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

    • HELLO EVERYONE! My name is ADRIANA & I am 28 from ONTARIO CANADA. I'm 100% HEARING & I've been SELF-TAUGHT asl for almost 10+ years. I fell in love with ASL after seeing it on a few old tv shows which have now been sadly cancelled & taken off the tv :'( 
      I don't use ASL as much as I would like, there aren't too many online chat sites for ASL, but I'm hoping to meet some people on here practice my signing & make a few friends
    • Hi guys! My name is Maggie and I'm currently starting my 4th semester of ASL and finishing up my associates degree in it! I too need to keep up with signing, and expand my knowledge by signing with more people! I still feel like my signing is pretty basic, but I will slow down if needed. You can email me at: [email protected] , and maybe we can all accommodate a time every week to chat and practice for a little while? Let me know what you think!
