BSL on your Mobile

If you live in the UK, you now have access to a dictionary of 5,000 words in British Sign Language (BSL) and their accompanying downloadable videos for your cellphones.

The interface of this video dictionary, available at http://mobilesign.org is even more Spartan than Google’s home page. But it’s very easy to use: you either search for a word to know if a language sign is associated with it or browse an alphabetical list. Then you download the compact video for your phone.

The Centre for Deaf Studies (CDS) of the University of Bristol has released this free tool for everyone who works with deaf people, has deaf customers or just want to learn the BSL signs. Their next step will be to provide users with a phrasebook.
