Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
StorySign is an app that opens the world of books to children
who are deaf. It is a free app available on Google Play that
translates selected stories into sign language.
This is how it works: first, the child or parent opens the app
and selects a book from the StorySign Library. Then, they
hold their phone up to the words on the page and a friendly
character, Star, signs the story as the printed words are
highlighted. This allows parents and children to learn to
sign and read together at their own pace.
