We have implemented the latest Video on the Web technology on this website, using the native OGG/Theora video support instead of the proprietary plugin Flash. Using Firefox or Opera will give you better Web browsing experience (no need to download a plugin) and better system performance (native support and optimized video compression). Plus OGG Theora is open. Since the other Web browsers don't support the evolution of the WEB, make the Revolution happen : switch now!
South African Sign Language
Many people are fascinated with SL and they should because it is a beautiful language.
Dtv has a new slot where we teach Sign Language, so if you have been practising, make sure you don't miss the lessons.
We welcome comments, criticism and encouragements which will help us to bring you better programmes.
SLED has developed a South African Sign Language (SASL) dictionary that covers basic vocabulary including, but not limited to, food, places, household objects, people, emotions, questions and time. The book and accompanying DVD have been designed not only as a reference for SASL vocabulary, but also to give a sound introduction to the grammar of the language.
Multilingual pamphlets containing valuable information on SASL and the Deaf were created by the Western Cape's Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport's Language Services Unit.
This was done in an effort to assist the implementation of the Western Cape Language Policy.
SLED stands for Sign Language Education & Development. They offer courses in South African Sign Language for beginners and more.
