This site is an invaluable resource for learning more about ASL or American Sign Language, the method of communication used by hundreds of thousands of hearing-impaired Americans who find communicating verbally difficult or impossible. I’ve always found sign language to be fascinating. It’s a very handy skill to have, even if you don’t have have a hearing impairment.

Visitors to the site can browse words alphabetically.


If you register for a free account, you can use the search box to look up words or phrases. Just type a word or phrase into the search box and click on the magnifying glass icon.


Free account users can search up to five words or phrases per day.  The results include animated GIFs that actually show you how to make the sign and instructions on how to fingerspell words.


The home page features article about topics of interest to the hearing impaired and there’s a learning section that offers suggestions on how you can learn more about ASL.

There are also paid levels of membership for those who require the service or are just interested in learning more about ASL.
