Inspiration

The majority of deaf children are born to hearing parents, and these parents want to do everything possible to help their children function in a hearing world. Unfortunately, some parents think they should not enable their child’s deafness by teaching the child sign language until after they have tried extensive speech therapy. However, the majority of a person's language is learned by the time that person is three, which is the age that intensive speech therapy begins to make a difference.

Signlingo

This application was built by amateur developers who got an idea to focus on building something useful for society - something that could improve spreading awareness in subjects such as this one - the disabled community of people, deaf people. We learned that we should definitely talk about this topic more. It’s important for everyone to know about its presence, even those who are not directly facing it on a daily basis. We built a learning platform that teaches ASL in a fun way.

How we built it

React, Tailwind and Figma.

Challenges we ran into

Time.

What's next for Signlingo

Implement AI in order to recognize sign language.
