Signly

Ever since we started using PenFriends and Discovery Pens to give visually impaired people and others audio access to our museums in Bristol, I have wanted to find a way of doing something similar for British Sign Language users. A new app, called Signly, launched at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, could be just what I’ve been looking for.

A smartphone with the Signly app is used with stickers placed around the Museum.

“The app recognises the image on the sticker and within seconds a lively interpreter pops up and starts to sign the audio-visual material.”
