Video Chat?

Is there some kind of extra software that i need to download to use the video chats on this site? I think using them would help me learn better, but when i join one it just comes up with a grey screen with a picture in the middle of a camera with a line through it. It might be something to do with software, or just that my webcam isn't enabled somehow (let this site access my microphone and camera when the pop-up came up though). I'm on my Lenovo laptop with Windows 10 if that helps. Thanks in advance!

Hi Daisy, maybe try a different internet browser too!
Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox etc all have diff securities and settings which might be blocking the camera.

If that doesnt work have you installed any required drivers for your webcam?

Whatever the make of camera, go to the manufacturers website, check the support pages and there should be a drivers and downloads area where you can search for the particular model.

Hi! I'm so sorry I didn't see this, I haven't been on here for a while. I'm not sure whether Zoom works for me either, but if I can work it out and you still want to practice we can one day if you want?

    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more. 
    • Hi, I'm new to the forum. I've joined as I am learning BSL and loving it! I want to get as much practice as possible and learn alongside other like minded people!
