In this section is a collection of interactive lessons on real-world topics. We'll walk you through a situation or circumstance, and throughout the way we'll learn useful signs and information to conquer them.
Before we start, however, let's talk a little bit about how these lessons are going to work.
This is Nana. They will be your guide throughout these lessons. Take this time now to familiarize yourself with how to control the camera and view settings.
Use the left mouse button or swipe to rotate the camera around the signer.
Use the right mouse button or swipe with two fingers to pan the camera around the scene.
In full screen mode, use the scroll wheel or pinch in and out to zoom the camera in and out.
With the pause button you can pause and play the motion.
With the playback controls you can change the playback speed.
The fullscreen button allows you to enter or exit full screen mode.
If the interactive mode is too slow or intensive for you to use, you can disable it and fall back to video using the 'Display options' available at the top of any page.
Most of the time, Maya will be just showing you a word or sentence, or acting out a scene. Sometimes, though, you might be prompted to respond. Don't feel too intimidated by this - it'll make sense in due time.
Oh, I almost forgot. While our community mostly lives in VRChat, for the most part, Maya will be showing you real sign language. We'll of course show you how to do everything in VR also, but keep in mind that our VR adaptations are only a substitute - for the best experience, you need to take the time to learn the real thing too.
Speaking of - I need to know what VR kit you're using. If you don't have one yet, feel free to pick one you're interested in. If you're logged in, I'll remember what you picked even if you come back later.
