ASL Baby Sign by Kwebl

ASL Baby Sign by Kwebl

Kwebl BV

Learn to communicate with your baby way before the talking starts, using simple ASL baby signs. With the Kwebl Dictionary app you can quick and easily find signs, so you and your baby can start communicating from the start. From as early as 8 months old!


FEATURES
- A growing number of ASL baby signs right in your pocket.
- Looping videos, so you can easily see how it’s done.
- Slow down the video, to better view the hand shapes.
- Find a sign in 3 simple steps with the easy interface.

**More ASL signs coming soon.**


ABOUT THE APP
With the Kwebl ASL Baby Sign dictionary app, you can easily learn ASL signs to make early communication possible. This creates a tighter parent-child bond and stimulates early (language) development.


ABOUT US
We are Kwebl (from the Dutch word ‘Kwebbelen’, which means babbling), and we’re here to enable early communication between you and your baby. How? By making use of something we all do from birth. Making hand gestures!
Even the youngest children want to tell you what they need, feel, and see. But they’re unable to express themselves verbally. This often brings along misunderstanding or even tantrums!
By signing ASL, your baby will be able to tell you what’s up. Spontaneously bursting into tears without you knowing why will be a thing of the past. By designing our products specifically for parents and children from 8 months up, we make real communication possible, easy, and fun. We use the official sings of the American Sign Language (ASL).

If we can help you with anything regarding ASL, or you have any questions, please let us know. Send us a message or see www.kwebl.co

Sign 4 Me

Sign 4 Me

Vcom3D

"Sign 4 Me – A Signed English Translator" is the ULTIMATE tool for learning sign language. The ONLY app that provides sign language instruction in 3D!

Featured by Apple as New and Noteworthy!!

In response to our customers’ feedback, we have added biblical signs. Hope you find them useful!

Visit http://signingapp.com for demo video.

Our 3D character can be zoomed in or out and rotated to give you the best vantage point for every sign. YOU control the placement of the character – not us! No other product lets you do this!

The library includes more than 13,000 words. Type in sentences, phrases, words and even the alphabet. Everything you enter will be saved in your History. Easily locate your entries by date or alphabetically. You can delete whatever you don’t want to keep.

Use the controls to speed up or slow down the signing; turn on or off the looping feature; and send the character to his “home” or default position.

SEE BELOW FOR HELPFUL TIPS AND CONTROLS.

Vcom3D, the original developer of sign language software using SigningAvatar® characters, wants you to be able to learn sign language the way you need to communicate. If you have friends or a co-worker who is Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing, now you can learn signs to communicate with them. The playback is in Signed English for the hearing person who wants to learn basic sign.

Our ASL team of 8 Deaf professionals has created these accurate signs based on their native knowledge of sign language. Visit us on the web for more information about our research to support the needs of the Deaf community and provide tools for learning and accessibility.

NOTE ON Signed English VS. ASL – Dynamic translation from English to true ASL is a complex problem just as translation from any language into another would be. We are currently researching this technology.

This product is intended for the beginning learner or anyone with an interest in learning signs. We hope to foster better communication between the hearing and the Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing communities.

HELPFUL TIPS –

To learn how to reproduce a sign, we recommend slowing down the signing speed, zooming in and rotating the character so you can see it from different angles. This will give you a better view of the proper handshape and movement of the sign. This is especially helpful for finger spelling.

If you are interested in learning the alphabet, type in ABCDE, etc. with no space in between each letter. The character will show you what each letter sign looks like.

3D CONTROLS –
Zoom in – Spread 2 fingers across screen.
Zoom out – Bring 2 fingers back together.
Rotate – Swipe with one finger.
Pan – Use 2 fingers to grab and move character.

2D CONTROLS –
Clear all history - Tap the menu icon in the history view, then tap "Clear History".
Delete one history entry - Long press on a history item and tap "Delete".

Why this app?
When we found out our son had hearing loss, our whole family was eager to learn sign language. That was when we discovered that our kids benefited from interactive visual material. However, it was hard to find suitable apps on signing specifically designed for kids. The next thing we knew, we had decided to design one ourselves.

How do children learn best? By imitating other kids! My son loves this app, and I hope you will too.

How does it work?
The app is kid-proof and was designed to be used without the help of an adult. There are no external links or ads, so no internet connection is needed to work the app. While there is no complex text, kids will have no issues navigating our clear and tappable images.

**** Support ****
We are dedicated to creating and expanding a high-quality app that unlocks your child’s learning potential in a fun way.

Spell: Learn the Sign Language Alphabet

Spell: Learn the Sign Language Alphabet

Wit Dot Media Inc

Spell is an app to learn and exercise reading and spelling in the American Sign Language (ASL).

Learning the alphabet can be helpful for learning sign language. Being able to interpret the letters quickly and signing them yourself makes conversation a lot easier.

How it works

The app picks a word and spells it out. If you understand the word, choose "Next Word"; the app will pick another word and spell it slightly faster. If you missed the word, choose "Show Again"; the app will slow down and repeat the word. This way the app adjusts to your skill level as you learn.
