British Sign Language (BSL) Resource for Learners

BSL resource logoRecently I came across a brilliant American Sign Language (ASL) resource by Glenda Hampton Anderson, as a result I searched for a similar resource related to British Sign Language (BSL) and did not find anything as comprehensive.

I’ve been a BSL learner for last 2 years and I’m in the process of completing a Level 2 BSL certificate at hfals. During this time I have gathered a comprehensive list of BSL resources that I will now share with new, current or future BSL learners, which I hope you will find useful.

This resource will cover BSL websites related to: information, news, mobile apps, TV, events, dictionaries, books and Twitter.

[List] 2011 Web Accessibility Seminars, Events & Conferences in the UK

On 3rd February a twitter question was asked by @webconscious:

Know of any Internet related accessibility events/exhibitions in UK 2011? (see original tweet: http://twitter.com/#!/webconscious/status/33204117027426304)

This tweet was subsequently circulated to a few #a11y people including @peskypeople who in turn asked me if I knew of any other events besides a11yLDN. At the time I was about to start my BSL class I was rather distracted and I couldn’t think of any. However, I returned to the conversation the next day were it appeared to conclude that there were only one UK based accessibility event occurring this year (as illustrated by a tweet by @peskypeople http://twitter.com/#!/peskypeople/status/33579158160277504). Feeling rather concerned by this I carried out some research, and so far I’ve found the following seminars, events and conferences*:

*please contact organisers for availability and fees

As of today the list is rather small, so I plan to update this post throughout 2011 with UK accessibility seminars, events and conferences as I come across them. However if any of my readers know of any other seminars, events or conferences please leave details in the comment section below.
