Deaf New Zealanders will have better access to the country’s third official language with the launch of a multimedia sign language dictionary.
The online database contains about 4000 New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) signs, accompanied by line drawings and video clips to show how to produce each sign and how the signs are used in context.
“This is a unique national resource that enables public access to New Zealand’s third official language,” David McKee, director of the Deaf Studies Research Unit at Wellington’s Victoria University, said.
