Making bedtime stories accessible to deaf children

We have previously talked about using a PSP and semacodes to make a text book a multimedia experience. Using the same principles Longwill School, Birmingham, have been making bedtime stories accessible to deaf children. The teachers film themselves signing each page of the book. Each clip is then assigned a semacode using Second Sight Content Creation Suite such that when the PSP camera is directed at the semacode the appropriate signing is triggered.

The children borrow the bedtime story books from the school library along with the memory stick on which the clips have been copied and also a Second Sight application UMD.

The following is a short clip showing the experience the children get.
