    ANIMATION: American Sign Language

    As a high school student, I have been given the chance to take ASL (American Sign Language) and my World Language. Also, I have been on Episode for years, and now find it a little strange when there are “deaf” characters, yet no signs as an interaction. Don’t take me wrong, that would take a hella long time to code and such. Its just, there are many members of the deaf community, and I feel it would add more diversity to Episode.

    Even if it is simple ones such as:
    ASL_THANKYOU
    ASL_NO
    ASL_YES
    ASL_SAD
    ASL_HAPPY

    Hey hey, these examples are kinda sucky, but I still firmly believe it can bring so much more diversity. It would be great to have a character who is deaf, and we could see them sign just a little bit. It would honestly rock my world.
    American Sign Language is such an awesome, fantabulous language, for your information. I would 11/10 recommend it as a high school or college course. Love learning all about it.
    Hope this isn’t asking for too much. This just popped into my head and I said, “I must write this down somewhere”
    Have a fabulous day!

    Like you said, it would take a heckuva lot of work to code, but the idea does sound really interesting. I'm all about encouraging more diversity in these stories, diversities of all kinds.

      I totally support this! I've been working on a story that includes a deaf and a mute character who are supposed to interact in sign language but it's so hard to find non-speaking animations that could somewhat pass for sign language. I would love it if Episode added some ASL animations.

              Hey, would you be requesting this for LL or INK? I'm wondering because I'd like to add this into my thread for LL Suggestions!

                I guess LL, because that is what they will be continuing with in the future?
