U.S. based Ink & Salt has partnered with American Greetings Entertainment (AGE), the intellectual property and outbound licensing division of American Greetings Corporation to design an app for kids called “ASL with Care Bears” that will help them learn American Sign Language, a predominant sign language of Deaf communities in the United States and Canada in a friendly and interesting manner.
The app incorporates hit characters from the Care Bears (Twitter: @carebears) series including Funshine Bear, Grumpy Bear, Share Bear, and others to make the learning process fun and interesting.
ASL with Care Bears features more than 400 signs and phrases categorized by theme, easy features and accessible read-along translations. The app also includes an ASL alphabet chart and videos feature gesture controls including rewind, pause, play and fast forward along with slow motion replay options.
ASL with Care Bears is available on iPhones & iPads running on iOS 8.0. The application is free to download and offers many in-app purchases.
