Towards Inclusive Learning and Research with Sign Language SurveysPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
American Sign Language (ASL) is the primary language that many people within the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community in the United States learn and use. Because of this, English can be an unnecessary obstacle as it is often a secondary language to the signer, making traditional education or research participation difficult. Our team collaborated with the ASL Education Center (AEC) to design an ASL-centric survey tool that would not rely on the written English language. After iteratively prototyping a tool focused on user experience and empowerment, we conducted a user study with seven participants to solicit feedback from Deaf and Hard of Hearing users. Using this feedback, we analyzed participant responses to provide recommendations to guide further development of the ASL survey tool.
