The Signing High School

Virtual Environments have always had a gift for lessening or eliminating the differences between people, smoothing out the effect of disabilities, crossing boundaries, and proving the mind above all is what really matters. A project such as this may be poetic justice then: An academy to teach sign language, held entirely online.

Based in the adult VR world Taurius, based off of the ActiveWorlds codebase, the Academy of Sign Learning allows two people to carry on a conversation in American Sign Language (ASL), across the internet, teaching those with good hearing, a language of those without.
