A project by Access Israel is teaching Israeli Sign Language to thousands of people. As a result, more Israeli deaf people have employment as sign language instructors. Also, more hearing people are aware of Deaf people and how to communicate with them. Meanwhile, many people have finished basic sign language classes. In consequence, more people now want to take advanced-level Israeli Sign Language classes. In response, Access Israel is expanding their project, “Pay it Forward in Sign Language”. A mobile phone app also helps teach more vocabulary in Israeli Sign Language. Access Israel believes that other countries can start similar projects at low cost.
The web page and PDF file on the project are accessible for people using screen reading software.
