  • Is there any reason the one handed American Sign Language alphabet is being used in the banner rather than the two handed British Sign Language alphabet?

  • i am puzzled at why American sign language is used in the picture frame, it should be British sign language.

    Sign language varies from countries to countries just like spoken languages.
