From physorg.com: Sign language cell phone service created.
The world’s first sign language dictionary available from a mobile phone has been launched by the University of Bristol’s Centre for Deaf Studies.
Mobilesign.org is a video dictionary with over 5,000 British Sign Language signs. Produced by staff at the Centre for Deaf Studies, it is a mobile accessory to people who work with Deaf people, have Deaf customers or just want to learn to sign.
There is also help for parents with signs included that are specific to children like "Father Christmas", "potty" and "naughty".
The interface is extremely simple and is especially designed for mobile phone displays. Users either type in the word they want translated to sign or they choose from an alphabetic list. The signs do not appear until users ask for download, to avoid unnecessary charges for unwanted material. The signs can be played as often as users wish. [continue]
