Zero Project 2018

The Asian SignBank was awarded as an Innovative Practice of the Zero Project 2018, for providing a practical solution to improve accessibility for persons with disabilities.

The Asian SignBank (ASB) is a grant-funded project based in Hong Kong, China, documenting Asian sign languages to support sign language research and development through a searchable online database of over 6,000 signs. The project is a collaboration of deaf and hearing researchers jointly with the Centre for Sign Linguistics and Deaf Studies of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and with support from the Nippon Foundation.
