StorySign translates children’s books into sign language.

Tech giant Huawei has announced the launch of StorySign, a free app that reads selected children’s books and translates them into sign language.

A child or parent opens the app and clicks on a selected book from the StorySign library. Then they hold their phone up to the words on the page, and an avatar, Star, signs the story as the printed words are highlighted, allowing parents and children to learn to sign and read together.

StorySign is available for free on Android via the Google Play Store and the Huawei AppGallery, in 10 sign languages (British, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Irish, Belgian Flemish, Swiss-German).
