About the “Smart Translation Algorithm”
• Over 1,400 idioms and common English phrases are recognized and their meaning is translated. For example “cool as a cucumber” is translated to the sign for “calm”.
• The numerical system is recognized and translated. In ASL signs for dates, time, money and general numbers have different movements for each meaning. For example, the sign for 4 o’clock has a side to side movement, while the sign for 4 dollars has a twisting motion.
• Names are translated. “Mr. Brown” is correctly finger spelled while “a brown house” shows the sign for the color brown.
• Words/signs such as "to" "the" "are" "am" "be", which are not used in ASL, are automatically removed from sentences.

Learn how to sign ASL idioms and phrases. Jessica Tanner (deaf actress) and Dwight D. Godwin, NIC (certified ASL interpreter), translate over 100 idioms and phrases such as “do you need a doctor” and “train go sorry” into American Sign Language. (No internet required)
There are many different forms of American Sign Language. For example, there are over 100 different ways to sign “Birthday” and “Picnic” ASL signs vary in different parts of the country and even in different small social groups. We tried to take this into account and provide signs that are most commonly used.
American Sign Language is so much about expression, including movement of the eye brows, cheeks, eyes, cheeks, lips, and tongue. Our Sign Language models display these important expressions, you may notice that most signs are also mouthed for lip readers, but there are some signs that are specifically a facial expression without mouthing the word.
