The deaf can now send text messages using sign language
Text messaging does not have to be so difficult anymore for the hearing impaired. Make way for Signily a keyboard application from ASLized!, a non-profit organization working to enable the challenged.
The app allows users to send messages using emoji designed as signs. The application offers three options - beginner, intermediate and advanced.
Users can choose a level based on their knowledge of the sign language. The keyboard's signs also come in different skin tones for users to choose from. There is also an option without curse words.
