First Indian Sign Language Dictionary of 3,000 words launched in New Delhi
March 23, 2018
The first Indian Sign Language Dictionary was launched in New Delhi. The Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment, Shri Thawarchand Gehlot, launched the dictionary that has 3,000 words.
The dictionary has been developed by the Indian Sign Language Research & Training Centre (ISLR&TC) under the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (DEPwD).
Mr Gehlot said that the ISL Dictionary has been developed to overcome communication barriers between the deaf and hearing communities. It is focused on providing more information in Indian sign language.
The ISL Dictionary will give people who are deaf and hard of hearing the constitutional right to speech and opportunity of freedom of expression. Many more words will be added in this dictionary.
The ISLR&TC has been working on developing the Indian Sign Language Dictionary for the last one and a half years.
