Learn and compare signs from different Asian sign languages via the online Asian SignBank. This database can help people teaching or learning sign language. Furthermore, sign language linguistics researchers can use the Asia signs database to analyze signs. Both Deaf and hearing researchers in Asian countries help build the database.
