Sign language interpreting (SLI) on TV is still in need of basic research to support video production guidelines, a complex matter given the variety of sign language styles and screen layouts adopted by international broadcasters. The current paper aims to draft recommendations regarding the formal parameters for displaying SLI on TV. First, it offers an overview of current SLI access services. Second, it proposes a set of variables to be further studied. Third, it reports on feedback gathered from stakeholders. The article concludes with a list of recommendations that may be applied by broadcasters offering SLI access services.
