Abstract & description[edit source]
Lingua Libre SignIt add-on for Firefox is a demonstrator project which allows you to translate a (French) word into (French) Sign Language (fr:LSF) videos on any web page. When you read a text and come across a word you don't know, select that word, click on the SignIt icon: the sign in LSF and the definition of the word in French will appear on a window. If a word is not available in LSF, we invite you to record it with our easy-to-use webapp on LinguaLibre. The definitions come from the French Wiktionary to which you can also contribute.
