You’ve got to love the boffins at Bristol University’s Centre for Deaf Studies.
They’ve only gone and created a new app for their website MobileSign, featuring over 4000 signs, which can be accessed using a predictive search engine.
You can now view videos featuring your favourite signs anywhere you go, and the app even keeps a list of recently visited signs so you can go over what you’ve just learned.
Fantastic. And even better, it’s completely free.
Here’s a video of it in action:
To download the app, just go to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.deaf.com.mobilesign
