Our 3D character can be zoomed in or out and rotated to give you the best vantage point for every sign. YOU control the placement of the character – not us! No other product lets you do this!
The library includes more than 13,000 words. Type in sentences, phrases, words and even the alphabet. Everything you enter will be saved in your History. Easily locate your entries by date or alphabetically. You can delete whatever you don’t want to keep.
Use the controls to speed up or slow down the signing; turn on or off the looping feature; and send the character to his “home” or default position.

Vcom3D, the original developer of sign language software using SigningAvatar® characters, wants you to be able to learn sign language the way you need to communicate. If you have friends or a co-worker who is Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing, now you can learn signs to communicate with them. The playback is in Signed English for the hearing person who wants to learn basic sign.
Our ASL team of 8 Deaf professionals has created these accurate signs based on their native knowledge of sign language. Visit us on the web for more information about our research to support the needs of the Deaf community and provide tools for learning and accessibility.
NOTE ON Signed English VS. ASL – Dynamic translation from English to true ASL is a complex problem just as translation from any language into another would be. We are currently researching this technology.
This product is intended for the beginning learner or anyone with an interest in learning signs. We hope to foster better communication between the hearing and the Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing communities.
HELPFUL TIPS –
To learn how to reproduce a sign, we recommend slowing down the signing speed, zooming in and rotating the character so you can see it from different angles. This will give you a better view of the proper handshape and movement of the sign. This is especially helpful for finger spelling.
If you are interested in learning the alphabet, type in ABCDE, etc. with no space in between each letter. The character will show you what each letter sign looks like.

Ratings and Reviews
Good App but ...,
I work in a college and occasionally I have to wait until the interpreter arrives and this is a great app to initially communicate with deaf students. However, how do you use different avatars? I have been stuck with Jack ever since the upgrade and sometimes I would like to try a female interpreter. Also, I was not able to contact the developer on their site and that’s why I did it in a review. If anyone can help me, I would be appreciative.
Great signing app
This app is surprisingly good. it shows some facial expressions and knows to combine phrases like "not yet." I don't really use any other ASL app but this one. It would be great if they updated it more than once a year but it almost doesn't need it.
Of course, it would have been helpful if I had read the description before purchasing, HOWEVER: this is not ASL. I don’t really get the point of signing the way this app teaches. It’s confusing to me. I got this app to help my boyfriend communicate with my family better and it doesn’t really help much. Just confuses things more when there are plenty of us who can just translate for him.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
