Description

Sign language is not universal, there are hundreds of versions used throughout the world. But could there be one common sign language that everyone could understand? International Sign promises to be that language! So is this the answer to global sign communication? How universal is International Sign? Who really uses it? Dr Annelies Kusters (Heriot-Watt University) asks whether the global deaf community needs to be multilingual or is International Sign the answer to communicating throughout the world?
