Hey BSL Forum!

We at Otermans Institute are currently developing a process to support students with hearing impairments when over 7 million people in the UK alone suffer from severe hearing disabilities. This is done by building an AI model that aims to provide close to real-time translation of educational content in British Sign Language.
 
We are urgently looking for individuals who know British sign language to support us with this. The role is varied and up to individual volunteer’s strengths and interests. However, the core support task includes actively working on deciphering sign language and data collection to support this AI model. This is a voluntary role and each ‘Sign Language Champion’ who completes working with us will receive support with paid training.
 
Requirements: Knowledge of British Sign Language (Level 3 or higher)

For more information, visit here 
Contact: [email protected] 

If you fulfil the requirements, please contact us or if know anyone who can contribute, please do share this with them. It would be of great help for the technology to expand and to help the community.
