Isara

Isara

Rizky Ario

Isara is a Deaf community-center platform that includes an open sign language learning application, an online sign interpreter service, and a crowdsourced, Deaf-friendly video subtitle-making tool. Isara offers fair business model by liberating sign language learning so that everyone can easily – and at no charge – take a sign language course made and maintained by Deaf communities. In return, sign language learners with hearing capability can help Deaf communities by subtitling videos to make online videos deaf-friendly.

ISARA LEARNING
Isara Learning is an open sign language dictionary and learning platform to preserve, teach, and learn sign language. It offers a sign language course to learn basic sign languages and to exercise sign language skills. Isara Learning allows Deaf communities and sign linguists to collaborate in building sign dictionaries and sign language courses. The feature combines various translations provided by contributors (i.e. users) and automatically compiles multiple possible translations of a sentence; in other words, the feature is self-learning through the collaboration of the community. The quality of the content is thoroughly maintained as it is provided by deaf users and moderated by sign linguists

ISARA INTERPRETER
Isara Interpreter is an Uber for sign interpreters – a peer-to-peer, on-demand, online sign interpretation service. It aims to improve the accessibility of public services and businesses such as hospitals, police stations, and banks for the Deaf community. This will bridge the communication between Deaf and Hearing people. With video call technology, sign interpretation services can be delivered remotely, improving its accessibility while significantly reducing cost compared to the conventional face-to-face sign interpretation service. Distance, time, and money will no longer be a hindrance for the Deaf. The community will have the opportunity to be involved actively in the society, starting from joining conferences to attending university courses.

ISARA MEDIA
Isara Media is a crowdsourced video subtitle maker. Through this feature, a Deaf person can request subtitles for online videos such as YouTube and Vimeo. Isara will then automatically generate subtitles using speech recognition technology, publish the draft-subtitles to be reviewed and revised by the Isara community.

Baby Sign Language

Baby Sign Language

Christian Larsen Music

I remember when my daughter was born that I desperately wanted to know what she was thinking. I just could not wait until she was two years old when she would start talking. I didn't want to miss anything that was going on in the interim. So I came to Baby Sign Language as an activity we could do together to start communicating.

Baby Sign Language gives you an sneak peak into the head of your baby. It allows your baby to show you some of the things she is thinking and let you share some of your thoughts with her. All that plus a healthy dose of fun, helps you and your baby grow even closer.

Research on signing with your baby confirms an enhancement of the parent-child bond, reduction in fussiness and advanced mental development. One study showed that eight year olds who learned baby sign language as infants had an average IQ 12 points higher than non-signers.

As well as giving parents a way to start communicating with their baby earlier, baby sign language makes the baby's life easier too. Being able to tell you what is on her mind gives your baby a little more control over her life, reducing frustration and the resulting fussiness. Many signing babies seem to skip the terrible twos stage and sail smoothly into toddlerhood!

Using sign language enables your baby to start communicating about six months earlier than if you were just relying on speech. Being able to sign accelerates your baby's progress to words as well. Studies show that signing babies develop larger speaking vocabularies than their non-signing counterparts.

This iPad app teaches you how to begin signing with your child in a four part method. It contains 20 signs including: mommy, daddy, milk, hungry, diaper, I love you, and more.

Each sign comes with:

- a video example of the sign
- illustrations
- descriptions
- tips on usage, and
- flashcards to practice with your child

BabySignLanguage.com is a project for parents teaching infants and toddlers early communications skills. We believe that early communication sets the foundation for accelerated learning, reduced frustration, and a closer relationship between parent and child.

Enjoy signing with your baby today!

Learning sign language (ASL) will not only provide you with an opportunity to communicate with deaf relatives and friends but will also open job opportunities as a sign language interpreter. It not only helps you in communicating but also gives happiness to the deaf people around you as they are also able to understand conversation you have and the jokes you crack.

Learning ASL is a complete different experience as compared to learning different languages as it helps you explore a whole different and unique form of communication.
