Content available in British Sign Language (BSL)
British Sign Language, also known by the abbreviation BSL, is the language used by more than 50,000 deaf people in the UK.
Currently, there are not many sites that offer BSL as a communications medium. However, one example is the British Deaf Association, an organisation that promotes sign language and deaf issues. They provide information in BSL using Flash technology.
Another is ITV's Signed Stories, in which storybooks for children are read out in BSL (along with subtitles).
As the use of broadband increases and signing technology develops, there will undoubtedly be more web resources for BSL users.
