The Mission and Vision For the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Communities
iSign Ministries is devoted to bringing digital evangelization and discipleship resources to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Communities. Working in partnership with other ministries, we are adding American Sign Language (ASL) overlay to quality media previously only available to the hearing community. Our current focus is ASL; however, we hope to be able to produce products for users of other Sign Languages around the world in the near future.
iSign Ministries has a vision to add ASL dialogue to current resources using what we call an ASL overlay. Most of us have experienced a foreign language video that has been "dubbed over" from the original oral language into a different oral language (e.g., Japanese into American English). The ASL overlay accomplishes this with the addition of an interpreter/actor instead of just the voice.
