SOOSL: Sign Language Dictionary Software

See more: ICT Tools

Sign Language Teachers can use SooSL to create a sign language dictionary for their students. Sign language researchers can use it to collect and/or compare signs from different sign languages or sign language dialects. You can look up signs by choosing a gloss but also by location, handshape etc .

There is now a web version of SooSL at https://web.soosl.net. This allows dictionary creators to give access to their dictionaries through the internet. Dictionaries can be posted publicly or kept private (behind passwords).
