Looking for ASL help!

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

    • I'm Simon from the UK. I am interested in finding out about resources for learning asl in the uk. For students travelling to the states. I have found a few things online but was hoping I could join this forum to help and to learn more about asl. Thanks
    • Hi I am Brittany. I have auditory processing issue and selective mutism. I have been learning asl off and on for most of my life. It is a special interest of mine but it is difficult when I dont have anyone to sign with.
