In today's post we'd like you to meet Sara McLanaghan, a BSL and Cued Speech professional who created British sign language videos to accompany a selection of Sean's readings for you to enjoy at home.
Sara was one of the first to collaborate with us on Tales in Sombre Tones and has been wonderfully enthusiastic and supportive throughout. Our mission with the tour both online and off is to allow as many people as possible to engage with the book in ways they perhaps wouldn't be able to otherwise. To accommodate the deaf and hearing impaired, we sought Sara's help for the UK tour and are now looking at ASL translation for our American audience, with a view of course to adding further interpretations as the project grows. We also understand that not everyone with hearing problems uses sign so we've also added subtitles to our videos.
