Blind History: Vlad the Impaler – Sign Language (SASL)
This sign language interpreted video has been adapted from the podcast ‘Blind History’ – created by CliffCentral.com and Taylor Blinds & Shutters.
Dracula is a fictional character… a satanic creature that drinks the blood of its victims. Bram Stoker made that creature up, but the real-life inspiration of Vlad Dracul is much more sinister – a cruel, sadistic monster that put thousands of people to death in the most unimaginably vicious ways. Find out about Vlad the Impaler – how he got his name, what he did and why you should be glad he’s in Blind History and not in your living room.
Podcasts – by the very nature of what they are – exclude the hard of hearing community. In order to make it more accessible and share entertaining, informative and compelling podcasts with as many people as possible, CliffCentral is piloting a South African sign language interpreter video from the popular Blind History series.
This is a first-of-its-kind concept, created with Thuli Zikalala (one of twelve SATI accredited interpreters in South Africa).
The aim of the project to remove the barriers to information access and ultimately introduce new audiences to the world of podcasts.
This initiative is sponsored by Taylor Blinds & Shutters.
