Harry Potter FanFic in Sign Language | ASL Lit | #WeNeedDiverseBooks|

ewitty:

A ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ style ASL story that takes place in the Harry Potter universe (à la fan fiction). (On YouTube, at the end of the video, you will be shown two options, you will have to decide which path to choose in order to continue the adventure.) The concept will continue to evolve over time as more and more chapters are released.

[Quick note: video quality for Chapter 2 is much, much improved!]

Q: But, um, why do you want to do this? 
A: Um, because we need more ASL literature.

Hello, I was wondering if there's a way for me to access a transcript/voiceover for the Hogwarts & Deaf School video you posted. I've taken ASL for only about 2 years, so I don't quite understand everything that's being said and curiosity has gotten the better of me! Anyway, great blog! Thanks for any help! :)

Hi!! Well, the signer themselves did not provide captions, but I will work on a transcript and post it! :)

Hi there! My name is Caelie, and I just wanted to say, I just found your blog and I LOVE it. I'm just beginning to learn ASL, and going to school to become an interpreter and it's just....opened my eyes in so many ways. I'm hoping I'll be able to do well, even though I'm older (at 20) and learning ASL for the first time, I know it's easier to grasp the younger you are....But you've totally gained a new follower here! :D

Hi Caelie!! Thank you so much for your message!! I am glad you like the blog! I’m 22 and still learning, so don’t give up! Keep on learning and feel free to contact me with any questions!

hi, I just found your blog, but I love it already. I'm studying to become a deaf interpreter myself, but for vgt, Flemish sign language. :) please keep up the good work, because people need to become more aware of sign language!

Wow! I’ve never heard of VGT, how exciting that Tumblr allows people from all over to connect! I’d love to maybe Skype with you and share some signs some time! Keep it up!!
