Deaf Bible 2.0 Adds 10 Sign Languages and Innovative New Design

Deaf Bible 2.0 Adds 10 Sign Languages and Innovative New Design | Broad Canvas | Scoop.it
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., March31, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ Deaf Bible was originally released in November 2012 with American Sign Language (ASL) as the only translation available on the app. Even with just one translation, it quickly became one of the most popular Deaf apps in the market and has been downloaded and used in countries all over the world. With the release of Deaf Bible 2.0, the app will include 10 additional sign language translations that represent a potential outreach to more than 7.2 million people that use these languages. The redesign features a completely new look and feel through a fully video-centric experience that was designed by and for the Deaf user. The app's technology and user interface clearly stand out for its use of icons in place of text and its unique sign language-based navigation, which makes the app more user friendly for those whose primary form of communication is sign.

Deaf Bible was originally released in November 2012 with American Sign Language (ASL) as the only translation available on the app. Even with just one translation, it quickly became one of the most popular Deaf apps in the market and has been downloaded and used in countries all over the world. With the release of Deaf Bible 2.0, the app will include 10 additional sign language translations that represent a potential outreach to more than 7.2 million people that use these languages. The redesign features a completely new look and feel through a fully video-centric experience that was designed by and for the Deaf user. The app's technology and user interface clearly stand out for its use of icons in place of text and its unique sign language-based navigation, which makes the app more user friendly for those whose primary form of communication is sign.

"This is an amazing step forward to have a product for the Deaf be created with full participation and input from those in the Deaf community," states JR Bucklew, director of Deaf Bible. Bucklew is a CODA (child of Deaf adults). While hearing, he learned to sign prior to speaking and therefore considers ASL as his heart language.

"It has been incredible to watch the popularity of this app grow," continues Bucklew. "And now we're able to expand with more translations and a distinct design that will make the Deaf Bible app a truly unique offering not only for the Deaf, but within the app world in general."
