As salam Alaykium brothers and sister,

I wanted to see if there were any other deaf Shia on here?  I live in Washington DC and get pretty isolated because I have not met any other deaf Shia.  Maybe someone knows of ASL interpreted lectures online?

Forgive me if this is the wrong place to post.

Welcome to Shiachat :)

Are you looking for islamic lectures? Why don't you transcribe the video or audio lectures to text, or maybe look for lectures with subtitles? These would be more easily available than ASL interpreted lectures.

I do not find lectures with transcripts most of the time.  With subtitles if it is youtube the automatic subtitles are awful.  I do read a lot of books.

But why I want ASL lectures is because ASL is my first language.

wa 'alaykum assalam,

Do you read French by any chance? This channel as many long videos translated:

With English subtitles there are only a few that I know of, and the videos are unfortunately not very long (although there are still hours of footage)

This channel is mostly in Arabic, but there are still a couple of dozen short clips if you search

@DeafShia

assalam 'alaykum,

Brother, if you had transcirpts, would you be willing to do the sign language for them?

Do you know International Sign Language?

I do not know ISL.  But I goto Gallaudet University which is a Deaf university and we have students here that are fluent in ISL.  I can ask them if they would be willing to help.  I am very happy to use the transcripts and create ASL videos though.  I will ask my friends today that know ISL.

But then how would you understand the videos?

Ok find out, and we can try and get this project off the ground insha'Allah

Do let me know if I can help in anyway.

Thanks, yes, I think that this will need to be a joint project as transcribing can take a while, but if several people do 5 minutes each things would go quicker insha'Allah
