With the advent of hand-tracking technologies in the latest generation of VR headsets, it is now possible to use Sign Language in VR.
Join us Wednesdays at 12pm PST to 1pm PST. This informal class will teach the basics of ASL while exploring the boundaries of what is possible in VR immersive environments. The class is taught by a Deaf instructor fluent in ASL. Disability representation matters!
Attendees will learn basic conversational signs, fingerspelling and how to introduce themselves to others in ASL. The class is intended to raise awareness about Deaf culture, and the current limitations of VR headsets when it comes to accessibility.
To build our learning community and coordinate classes, we are using Discord. Please join the CymaSpace Discord using the REGISTER FOR EVENT link. All instructions on how to join classes will be posted there.
There are a limited number slots per week, first come first served however we are happy to reserve slots for Deaf, disabled participants and parents of Deaf youth that make a reservation request at least 48 hours in advance of the lesson.
