Signs in What's the Sign?

Good natured, enthusiastic students of ASL would often tap their professors’ shoulders, asking “What’s the sign?”

Multiply the number of students by the number of shoulder taps = dented shoulders.

A team of experienced Deaf ASL professors decided to create What’s the Sign?, a web app that shows anyone the sign immediately, in their hand, anywhere they are!

Our dented shoulders have since recovered.
