Available in 10 sign languages and free to download, the StorySign app brings physical books to life through a friendly avatar called Star – who expertly reads each word in sign language as your mobile phone is held over the text. By translating written words into sign language, Star helps deaf children learn to read and get to know what different words represent.
90% of deaf children are born to hearing parents and have no access to sign language, which can make literacy a real challenge. With StorySign, Huawei are shining a spotlight on the issue and helping open the world of books to deaf children.
