Looking to just CHAT away using ASL

Hi, everyone.

I have been 'learning' sign language for years, mostly through books and rewinding when I see it on television. I used to work with the Sign Language Ministry at my church, but my current church doesn't offer the service. 

Now that we are on Lock-Down, I have been actively working on it again. I am Hearing, and I have no Deaf friends who I can practice with. I want to be able to communicate with others.

If you know how to communicate in sign language(s), you can help with this project by joining us on virtual conference sessions with a few other signers for 5 mins. Each session will be recorded for machine training and development purposes.

 

You will get a $100 for each completed session. 

 

Each participant can participate in up to 33 sessions.

Hi, Alex

I lost this page, then I had to recover my password.

 

I am sorry for taking so long to respond.

 

Yes, I am interested in getting some help. Thank you for the offer. I am on FB (Apryl Voner). It's usually the best way to reach me.

I am in the Eastern Time. I am available a couple of hours a day from 6 - 8.... I would love chats (multiple people?) of about 15 minutes each.

    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
    • I'll have to try some of these
