Snap Inc. unveiled the ASL Alphabet Lens for Snapchat. This Lens uses AR to help you learn the basics of the ASL Alphabet and test your knowledge in gamified encounters. Snap’s hand-tracking technology lets you “fingerspell” your name.

Over 400 million individuals are deaf or hard-of-hearing. We believe AR can transform how native signers interact in a world with linguistic injustice, the business claimed.
