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.

Thanks!

    • Hello! My name is Reny, and I am searching for opportunities to practice ASL. I am hearing, and I am learning ASL as an independent study for school. I want to learn this language right, which is hard to do without another pair of eyes, so that is why I'm here. I am a novice in ASL, but I do already know some syntax, a handful of signs, and my alphabet, even if I do stumble a bit. I am looking forward to getting to know this community, and I am hoping I can be of assistance to others, as they are to me.
    • You can learn a lot by watching ASL speakers talk to each other. Pick a video and then try to imitate what they are saying and how they are saying it. It is important that there is more than one person in the video so you can see how they react and respond with turn taking. Please post a video that you would like to discuss, and then ask questions about everything. Eventually you will undersrand enough to not need to ask a lot of questions in future videos. Here is an example to the knid of video to study. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hRRw15weblc
