Reviewer: Peterborough and District Deaf Children
Review: “Are you interested in, or learning, BSL? Then have a look at this app. Based on the popular ‘Let’s Sign Dictionary’ by Cath Smith, this app is the dictionary in your pocket. Just open the app, and either scroll through the vast list of words, or enter the word you want to look up. The picture is then displayed with an explanation.”
