Uber will teach you how to sign your name in its app

Uber will teach you how to sign your name in its app”

To pay tribute to National Deaf Awareness Month being commended in the United States amid the period of September, Uber has presented another component - basically a smaller than usual course - called Uber Sign Language which instructs a rider or driver how to speak with a deaf individual should they ever be matched with one. The text also includes a link to learn how to say "Hello" and "Thank you" in American Sign Language (ASL).

It'll also teach you how to sign your name in a sequence of videos, which is a pretty nifty addition.

Both companies launched the new features in honor of National Deaf Awareness Month and are working with the National Association of the Deaf to come up with ways the ride-sharing experience can be better.

While the Uber app isn't going to make you proficient in ASL, it will help give you a boost to help with basic communication. And beginning on September 28, every Uber rider will see a "card" pop up when their driver is deaf or hard of hearing.

The tutorial will teach people basic phrases that they are bound to use the most while on an Uber, like "hello", "thank you", "turn left", "turn right", "goodbye". That's much easier for learning purposes than ordinary illustrated images, and it won't take long for anyone to catch on and get the hang of it.

You'll need to update the app to see the new feature (assuming it hasn't updated itself already). They'll then be given a GIF with the word (s) in ASL.
