This recording may not work. Simon and admins are working on the video technology.
Ergo, transcript: Hello Jessica! Welcome! My name is Kaleigh [name sign]. I would be happy, actually I am eager to practice. It would be great to practice with you. Bye.

---EDIT BY ADMIN: We are almost there with these video gremlins! - Sorry this one didn't work completely - I have made a few tweaks and it should work better next time!

Jessica-louise Parfitt I'm a single mum to two young children so classes aren't an option for me at the moment so I'm doing it online which fits around them perfectly as I chose the time and day but I do miss out on learning from others as I just watch a short video clip and then have a 10 min skype tutorial each week. I'd like to be able to practice with others. I'm coming up for the 3 assessments so defo need the practice!!!!

well done completing your level 1 Lesley Silvester and good luck with your level 2.

I wish to take BSL classes. I live in America and obviously, ASL is the popular option around here 😝 -I am fluent in ASL.

I am glad to have found this forum as we can video chat! I definitely want to check out online classes though I may not be able to commit till this Fall.

I'm currently working towards my Level 2 which I hope to have completed in September. I am more than happy to help anyone who wishes to go over any Level 1 work, or help as well if I can towards Level 2. I am free most nights other than a Thursday, as I have my BSL course that day. If anyone needs help just let me know and I can come onto the chat rooms, and help.

Practise makes perfect.

    • Voiced over. Throughout this video, I sign the ASL signs for right handed and left handed.  Oops.
    • I am a left handed signer. Always have been. Some people are lefties and you'll find them. tip, just mirror whatever a right handed signe is doing whilst learning. You'll get the hang of it. Promise!
    • I am on my iPad today and cannot use the VSL forums. I would much appreciate if anyone can Skype me.  Cheers!
    • Hi All, I posted an intro about myself and was after some help to sign a video for me. As it happens I launched my fundraising plea without the video on Kickstarter today - please feel free to take a look and I would welcome any feedback and or support. This initiative is in aid of supporting the Deaf and Hard of Hearing IoT Smartcities infrastructure. Just launched: - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/77736556/digital-communication-channel-for-deaf-and-hard-of I would appreciate all or any help in achieving my goal please
    • Dear All, I am a bit of a (hearing) tech geek and have a personal friend who is Deaf, therefore I understand a fair amount about the difficulties of not being included in everything. I have recently identified a revolutionary new Digital Communication Channel that has been approved and endorsed by RDA (which will come free of charge to Deaf and Hard of Hearing & friends and family) and I am reaching out to the community for support in turning this into reality. I am in the process of setting up a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter, news to follow soon, however as part of my Kickstarter Application I would like to add a 'signed' video to demonstrate and verify my working proof of concept and looking for a volunteer. My plan is to develop an intelligent Lifestyle & communication Mobile Application including an ewallet with some really exciting and innovative features, eg augmented reality (think Pokemon Go but not as a game rather as an identifier), Gamification, loyalty etc to name only a few. For example, you're on a train/tube and suddenly it comes to a stop, no station in sight and there is no apparent reason for this stop. Hearing people get frustrated when there are no Tannoy announcements as to why they may have come to a stop, or how long they might be stuck in the situation or in fact just any news about what might be going on. Deaf and hard of hearing people don't have a choice, they just have to tolerate this or if confident enough ask someone nearby what is going on. Sitting in a Doctors' waiting room, Hospital A&E waiting for your name to be called is somewhat useless to Deaf and Hard of hearing individuals. A hearing person might be in a shopping mall when an emergency announcement is being made about a potential threat, this kind of announcement goes by without recognition from a Deaf person (unless they are being accompanied). A hearing person is able to hear public announcements in trains stations and airports about changes to schedules, delays and even boarding calls, however these announcements go totally unheard by Deaf and a lot of Hard of Hearing individuals, again unless accompanied. In light of the Manchester Bombings it has become even more apparent to me that there is a definite need for this form of Digital Infrastructure and Communication. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please feel free to get in touch directly or on [email protected] This is a personal venture!

    • Hello Simon:  The Finger spelling challenge is just brill. The way it spells my name out to welcome me is very clever. Is there a way I can download the game so that I can practice when I can’t get on-line?
