Another significant project is the development of new content for Signbank, the online Auslan dictionary, which is supported by funding from the Department of Education and Training. This new content will include signs, definitions and information for key subject areas in Vocational Education, developed in conjunction with Deaf professionals and interpreters working in these areas. The additional content for Signbank will support students and interpreters, as well as Auslan learners.
