ASL Dictionary app, etc.

Postby alexmatheson » Mon Jul 04, 2016 12:46 pm

various apps Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows, etc. w/5,200 signs in ASL + more.

cheap prices $4.99-$7.99

Might be helpful to Missionaries/Members learning ASL to communicate w/Deaf members/investigators.

ASL (online)

ASL is the 3rd most common language in the USA. However, Deaf people are the largest "unreached" group when it comes to the Bible (due to lack of Bible literacy).

I recommend concentrating Gospel materials in 1st- app form, 2nd- DVD, 3rd- downloadable/shareable.

Why? 1st- many deaf people use Face Time on Apple devices to communicate.
2nd- those who don't have $$ have at least a DVD player.
3rd- They like to download/share videos including, but not limited to, ASL -since they are manual/visual learners.
4th-Deaf people are culturally "open/honest".

The Gospel Library app has some materials in American Sign Language. The Church doesn't provide a lot of resources for learning languages, except for missionaries at the MTC – which is pretty structured already. The only specific language-learning materials I can think of that the Church makes available are the language study editions of the scriptures in Russian and Chinese.
