Sign language interpretation for musical events
The deaf (sign language users) and those who are hard of hearing with English as their first language and may lipread and/or use hearing aids represent an underserved minority within our societies. Sign language translation is a specific practice that contributes to social integration. The EU-funded WABP project will focus on sign language interpretation in music to allow the deaf and hard-of-hearing to participate in musical performance events. Specifically, it will study the work of sign language interpreters-performers who transpose songs and live concerts into sign language. The project will identify how interpreters-performers incorporate nonverbal elements of a text like a rhythm or a timbre. WABP will also benefit sign language interpreters.
