Meghalaya SignBank

The deaf community in Meghalaya consists of a group of children and adults who are either prelingually deaf or postlingually deaf. The community is not defined by geographical boundaries but by a sense of belonging that comes from the one common behavior which they share amongst themselves i.e., their ‘Sign Language’. This language can be referred to as the ‘Meghalaya Sign Language’ since it is commonly shared across the deaf communities in the state. The development of this Meghalaya SignBank would symbolize its strength as a linguistic entity and give recognition and empowerment to the language and its users. This would undoubtedly give a sense of pride and joy to the deaf community in the state and the developers of this android app deserve to be lauded. • At present this Meghalaya Signbank is a multi-modal and multi-lingual android app which also has multi-accessible features i.e. through visual and audio mode. It can be used only in Android phones and the size of the data is minimal. Users will not have any issues with storage.The app has been designed in a user-friendly manner, where English is used to access sign language. The user can simply type an English word and the corresponding sign will be displayed in a video format.
