ILP Continued

After my blog post last week I was given some help by one of my classmates. She read my article and sent me some links she had from a packet that she had received at a conference about sign language. There were six different links to websites about sign language that were all so different and exciting!

The first website, https://www.handspeak.com/, has a dictionary on it where the viewer can search any word in ASL and have the definition of the word as well as a short video clip of the sign being used. This is so helpful because it may be difficult to describe a word using just text. This website also gives a full lest outline on those beginning to use ASL. I thought that was so interesting and useful for people, like me, who are attempting to teach themselves ASL.

The next website, https://www.signingsavvy.com/, also has a dictionary tab like the website above. However, this one gives signs that are very similar to one another, but are slightly different. It gives a side-by-side video of the two signs that are similar so that the viewer can see the difference. I thought this tool was very helpful!

http://aslpro.com/ is the next website I looked at. This also had the dictionary tool, but also had a religious dictionary and a dictionary for phrases too. It also has a tab for ASL for babies, which uses very simple signs with no phrases. This website also gives quizzes over everyday sign, religious signs and fingerspelling! It was a very useful website.

I will discuss the other three websites in my blog post next week, so stay tuned for more!

  1. Jacob,
    Thank you for sharing your resources. These are great! I feel like there are days I have hit a brick wall and not sure where to go. Some signs I am not sure that I am doing them correctly.
