New technology helps teachers and parents develop their own Morocco Sign Language-supported educational materials. This helps them teach Deaf children to read through Morocco Sign Language. The project has documented more than 2000 signs. Teachers and administrators at 10 schools have received training. They learned to use the software and improve their teaching. More schools plan to use the software.
The Zero Project website highlighted this project as an Innovative Practice in 2018. Each year, Zero Project highlights innovative policies and practices in disability rights. Their website is partly accessible for people using screen reading software. Accessibility varies from one page to another within their site. Some images use alternative text to describe them for people who cannot see them. But others do not.
- This project is similar to a project in Russia and the US that uses technology and sign language to teach reading.
- Another project shares American Sign Language literature for children on the web.
