  • Hello

    I was delighted to have come across your website. I've been so disappointed when so many Deaf stations (websites) closed, particularly the daily news. Your website is very comprehensive and covers so many issues which is fantastic for Deaf and individuals, like myself, continuing with their BSL studies. I do struggle with receptive skills mainly because as the signers are so professionally fluent and thereby "fast", the play back becomes somewhat blurred. I remember one website I'd previously used (daily news in BSL) had an option to slow down/speed up the video clips. Would that be possible? Being able to view video clips with subtitles is extremely helpful but if I could just reduce the speed ........... marvellous!!!!!
    In hopeful anticipation,
    Kind regards and many congratulations on your website.
