Did you know...
of deaf individuals are born to hearing parents.
deaf people use ASL as their natural language in the U.S. and Canada.
Finding resources outside the classroom to teach and learn ASL can be difficult, but especially when…
You are a child who is deaf or hard-of-hearing, but those around you have no prior knowledge of ASL
You are the parent of a deaf or hearing-impaired child, but do not know ASL and cannot teach your child
Commonly available resources are limited due to
- Limited free content
- Little interaction with the child’s surroundings
- No recent updates
Kids are curious, active, and love to learn! So we decided to make an app that caters to these qualities and improves current solutions.
A mobile application that will make learning ASL...
Simple, colorful, and exciting.
Provide a fun and constantly interactive experience.
Smartphones/tablets = common resource.
Children will be able to readily learn the ASL most relevant to them.
Snap pictures of surrounding objects to get translations instantly.
View the ASL translation after taking a photo or exploring the dictionary.
Search through the dictionary for translations in categories: ABC's, people, home, food, and animals.
