Haryana to open digital sign language laboratory
Digital sign language books prepared by the Welfare Centre for Persons with Speech and Hearing Impairment in Gurgaon in Haryana will be distributed across the state to help hearing impaired children.
The state has an estimated 1.25 lakh kids with hearing impairments. A lab that is being set up will take up work on digital sign language.
The lab will use both sign language and speech therapy to develop educational content that can be used by hearing-impaired students.
Haryana is the second state after Madhya Pradesh to set up such a lab. Books of Haryana board and CBSE from Classes 1-10 will be published in digital sign language.
