Learn ASL and BSL Fingerspelling

American Sign Language (ASL) is a natural language. It is the primary sign language used for and by the deaf and mute people in the USA and Canada.

This WeCapable Tool takes the English text from you and plays the converted fingerspelling. Thus, it helps you in learning ASL and practicing your knowledge of the same.

You have the option of controlling the speed of playback. More learned people may want to speed up the playback and still recognize the fingerspelled words. Beginners may want to see the playback at lower speeds. You can also mirror the hand -- sometimes it helps you to practice better. You can change the size of the hand and also opt for the dark mode to reduce the screen glare.

American Sign Language is one of the most popular sign languages around the world. Although it contains the same alphabets as English, it is not a subset of the English language. Sentence formation or the sequence of words in a sentence is different in ASL as compared to English because of its unique grammar rules. ASL is considered to be a descendant of French Sign Language that is also influenced by Martha's Vineyard Sign Language and some other local sign languages. ASL uses the one-hand fingerspelling method for the English Alphabet.
