why doesn't ted translate the talks to the sign language ? لما لا تترجم محادثات تيد للغة الاشارة ؟

Deaf community need to be following the technology too aren't they ?
يحتاج مجتمع الصم لمتابعة التكنلوجيا أيضاً ، الا تظنون ذلك ؟
lucky we are in tedxkhartoum we will start doing that in our event, and we hope to put this as rule from now on in TED community.
لحسن الحظ في تيد أكس خرطوم سوف نبدأ في تنفيذ هذه الفكرة ونتمنى ان تصبح قاعدة في الاحداث القادمة.

    Apr 19 2011: Hello Ahmed,

    I don't know if it is really necessary to have sign language? Every talk will be transcribed and has subtitles.

    But as I am not familiar with the topic of sign language, I would like to know if there is an advantage of using sign language in comparison to subtitles?

      Apr 21 2011: The idea came from on of our talks, it's basically help the deaf community so we need them to be live watching and understanding this talk so we did that, our goal is to add this community to TED's fans.
