WFD and WASLI have jointly developed a statement to express our concern about the way in which decisions on where and when to use signing avatars as a form of access to spoken or written content is being managed by public authorities. As signed languages are fully-fledged languages with their own complex structures that are distinct from spoken languages, a word-to-sign exact translation is not possible because any translation needs to consider the context and the cultural norms.
