How do deaf people today travel across international borders? Furthermore, how do deaf people communicate in global context? For example, how do they use international signs? In response, a team of researchers researched issues related to international deaf mobility. Their research has four sub-topics: forced migration, labor migration, professional mobility, and tourist mobility. The Mobile Deaf website shares their research.

The website uses both written English and international signs. Meanwhile, the website is partly accessible for people using screen reading software, but with limits. For example, some images use alternative tags to describe them for people who cannot see, but other images do not. Also, some detail about international deaf mobility research is only in international signs. Therefore, some information is inaccessible for people who cannot see.

You may also want to read research about deaf communities and signed languages in 15 countries. Or, read research about how deaf professionals relate to deaf communities in developing countries.
