Learning African sign languages via a video app

For many deaf Ghanaians, Ghanaian Sign Language is their first language. But for more deaf signers to be able to fully participate in society, more sign language interpreters, deaf school teachers and family members need to be trained. What better way to facilitate this by means of a Ghanaian Sign Language app?

With the successful launch of the first-ever Ghanaian Sign Language GSL app, members of the Ghanaian deaf community, in collaboration with researchers from Leiden University, have taken an important step in making this language more accessible. Thanks to funding from the Leiden University Fund (LUF), this app is free of charge and contains over 1300 signs from Ghanaian Sign Language and their English translations.
