Meet the team behind India's first sign language dictionary
A group of 15 people are working on creating India's first sign language dictionary. This will have more than 7,000 signs.
The team is working hard to include all types of signs in the dictionary from academic, medical, legal, technical and daily use conversations that are commonly used by the hearing impaired.
The project is unique and one-of-its kind in India. The team working on the project includes speech and hearing impaired, deaf and people without disabilities.
The aim of the project is to create a more inclusive society by building awareness about Indian Sign Language in the country.
