We are conducting a study to research which manual American Sign Language parameter (handshape/movement/location/palm orientation) has the greatest impact on intelligibility. 

We are in the process of recruiting participants fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) to participate in this study. To be eligibile you must:

  • have professional working or native/bilingual fluency in ASL
  • be a least 18 years old
  • not have a cognitive impairment

For this study, you will be asked to watch blurry videos in ASL and type the missing word. It will take about 1 hour to complete and participants will be financially compensated with a $15 gift card for their time.

If you are interested or have any questions, please email with your name.
