We’re constantly working to expand the ways Snapchatters can express themselves and make connections through our Camera. We hope that Lenses not only evolve the way we see the world, but help us feel closer to one another. Today, we're launching an ASL Alphabet Lens in partnership with SignAll. It's a first of its kind Lens experience that inspires Snapchatters to start learning American Sign Language!
Led entirely by Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing team members here at Snap called the ‘Deafengers’, the ASL Alphabet Lens teaches you to fingerspell your name, practice the ASL Alphabet, and play games that put new skills to the test. It was built using groundbreaking hand-tracking technology that powered last year's fingerspelling Lenses in honor of International Week of the Deaf.
For native signers, in a world where linguistic inequity is prevalent, we believe AR can help evolve the way we communicate. We look forward to learning more from our community as we strive to continuously improve experiences for everyone on Snapchat.
Try the Lens now and begin your journey of learning American Sign Language!
