The American Sign Language Dictionary

Some programs are so well-conceived and designed that you wonder what people did before CD-ROMs came along. The American Sign Language Dictionary (HarperCollins Interactive) is a perfect example. This is a marvelous program and offers much more than the title suggests. Besides the excellent presentations of American Sign Language and finger spelling, you’ll find a fascinating section on the history of ASL, an extensive resource guide, and informative credits. The games and quizzes are clever and inventive – try Concentration after a few lessons, and you’ll be amazed by how much you can learn. There are plenty of preference settings available; you can turn off the sound, change the speed of the video, have them play only once or repeat, etc. The videos are crisp and clear, and best of all, they’re not just for show – they actually enhance the program. Top marks for this title.

– May 1995
