VDEI interviewed Marg Tope from the Bendigo Deaf Facility about the Auslan readers they are developing in collaboration with VDEI.
VDEI: Thanks for agreeing to be interviewed, Marg! Please tell us how you identified the need for this project?
Marg Tope: Yes, certainly! The Auslan Reader project as I titled it for the application I wrote, came about from observing inconsistent and often inaccurate translation of an English text into Auslan with regard to the take home reader we ask children to read with an adult each night.
