10 Deaf Children, 1 Powerful Message

Every day, Deaf people “fail” the hearing test immediately after being born, face “language delays” with their hearing family that don’t learn their natural language, and attempt “perfect speech” in order to fit into the hearing world. They fight to use interpreters that benefit both the hearing and the Deaf, and deal with job discrimination — all simply because they cannot hear.

Our goal is to create signing avatars without compromising the prosody and fluency in ASL storytelling. English translation: So! I live with three animals! One dog, one cat, and one bird! Everyday, my dog barks at me; Everyday, my cat stares at me; Everyday, my bird sings to me. Why? Oh! It's because they want food! They beg and I feed them! On a Saturday, oh no! My dog barks, my cat stares, my bird sings, and they all three beg! I feed, feed, and feed! But, I love my three animals! So! I live with three animals! One dog, one cat, and one bird! Made possible by Motion Light Lab and Mocaplab, and funded by the National Science Foundation Science of Learning Center on Visual Language and Visual Learning at Gallaudet University.
