Learn about a new language: Pro-Tactile ASL

Language is always evolving, and this new form of communicating emerged in the early 2000s. Deaf-blind Americans created a language that uses humans’ first language — touch. No sight or sound needed.

Pro-Tactile American Sign Language is not widely known, but it’s changing the way deaf-blind people communicate with each other.  Previously they’ve relied on Braille, fingerspelling, or using an interpreter.
