Govt Launches Indian Sign Language Mobile

Sign Learn

The Centre on Friday launched an Indian Sign Language (ISL) dictionary  mobile application called ‘Sign Learn’ containing 10,000 words.

The app was launched by Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Pratima Bhoumik.

Sign Learn is based on the Indian sign language dictionary of the Indian  Sign Language Research and Training Centre (ISLRTC) which contains 10,000 words.

The app is available in Android as well as iOS versions, and all the words in the ISL dictionary can be searched through Hindi or English  medium, officials said.

“The app has been developed to make the ISL dictionary easily available  and to make it more accessible for the public at large,” a senior official said.

Notably, ISLRTC had recently signed an MoU with the National Council of  Educational Research and Training (NCERT) on October 6, 2020
