Voting

Our Deaf members can vote for videos per TOPIC by searching for videos from our extensive "Wordlist".  All videos filed under that TOPIC will display, allowing you to vote for your favourite within that TOPIC.

In South African Sign Language, we have various dialects of Sign Language; sometimes it happens that two or more signs per concept exist. With the help of votes, we can see which of the Signs are frequently used. Indicating which signs a most often used makes it easier for people who want to learn South African Sign Language. A 12th Official Language is possible when signs are well documented.

Since Sign Language are native to Deaf people, voting and uploading privileges are only given to the Deaf.  For help with voting and uploading videos, please visit our Help page.
