Enjoy the beauty of
American Sign Language

Jason Listman signs Katy Perry's firework in American Sign Language. Look for other songs signed by Lankylistman on Youtube.

Do you want to be able to understand ASL without audio cue and subtitles? Do you need an ASL dictionary available for quick look ups? Scroll down to find the best apps you need.

Sign language is not only learning the signs and putting them together. It is a language of facial expression, body language and its own unique sentence structure. I was taught by a deaf co-worker. I feel very lucky to have had that opportunity.

Sign Language for the Classroom: ASL Library
By Barbara Pflaum
4.5 STARS out of 5

You can access 96 Biology signs for free. The other areas covered are automotive, countries, geography, government, history, math elementary, math secondary, physics, and technology. You can make in-app purchases of 99¢ for a set of two or three subjects. Each sign is shown in a clear video demonstration. Then you get the signed for the word in a sentence. The search function allows you to search for words.

I hope this app will increase the subject area they cover. I'm enjoying their presentations. If you feel the video a little small hold the phone horizontally. The picture will display a bit larger.

3Strike American Sign Language Fingerspelling
By MmpApps Corp.
4 STARS out of 5

A fun and easy way to check your Sign Language fingerspelling skills. Reading a finger spelled word is more difficult than signing letters.

This app allows you to see a letter at the top of the page. Then you tap the drawing of the hand shape that is the same letter. This app is very simple but if you miss 3 letters then your streak of correct hits starts all over again. Learning in a game fashion.

This app is incredibly useful for adults learning as well as an easy game for students who have deaf friends.

There are two parts to this app.

1. TEXT-TO-SIGN GENERATOR (Words are signed)


Part 1: PLEASE NOTE: The TEXT-TO-SIGN portion of this app translates English text into ASL signs. This does not mean it is translated into American Sign Language sentence structure. It generates signs in the order you typed the word.

It is really cool. Typing anything you want. A video of the words in the order you typed them immediately. Some how it figures out the difference between a name or color. For example, I typed in; Mr. Brown has a brown car. it spelled the name but sign the color for brown car.

Part 2: ASL PHRASES: A list of over 100 phrases in ASL. Just pick and watch. It may not be the way you learned it or thought it was signed but there are so many ways to sign a word depending on locality or group preference.

No Internet required to watch ASL Phrases.
No SOUND for the hearing person.
