Tying ASL and Online Meetings Together


Recommended Posts

Hi! I am in the Communications Department of a Non-Profit Research organization. I have noted that people are trying to devise hand signals to use during things like ZOOM meetings. My thinking is why devise when ASL probably already has them?

The most commonly rerquested signals are for:

Clarification - asking a speaker to further clarify they just made.

Agreement - you agree with what the speaker is saying

Disagreement - you disagree with what the speaker is saying

Can't hear the speaker

Can't see what the speaker is sharing from their computer

I have a question

Can someone enlighten me as to what ASL signs would work for these? Maybe we can teach a whole nation of work-from-homers a few ASl signs.

    • Hi, I started learning ASL about a year ago from videos and a book. I am 67 years old, retired and wanted to learn a second language. Unfortunately, no one else in my life is interested and I don't have anyone to sign with.  Best regards, Morris
    • 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
