AM312 StorySign App:
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.
