WikiConference North America 2023 unfortunately could not accommodate this submission in its program this year.


Sign Languages of the world : increase mutual understanding with Lingualibre SignIt.


Education, Equity / Inclusion / Community Health, Languages

Type of session:

Lightning talk


Sign Languages of the world can be video documented using Lingualibre, learning those can happen using Lingualibre SignIt.

Lingua Libre SignIt add-on for Firefox is a demonstrator project which allows you to translate a (French) word into (French) sign language videos on any web page. When you read a text and come across a word you don't know, select that word, click on the SignIt icon: the sign in LSF and the definition of the word in French will appear on a window. If a word is not available in LSF, we invite you to record it with our easy-to-use web app on LinguaLibre. The definitions come from the French Wiktionary to which you can also contribute.
