    Abstract

    A small project called ‘Developing a dementia information portal for Deaf British Sign Language users: a pilot study’, funded internally by MICRA (Manchester Interdisciplinary Collaboration for Research on Ageing) was completed in August 2014. A summary report with a number of recommendations is now available with kind permission from the committee.The project produced two different versions of information on dementia, signed in BSL. The first version was a BSL translation using text from ‘Getting to know me’ as a script, presented by a Deaf BSL translator. The latter version was a presentation of information, using the same text as a guide, transposed by the same translator in a number of different real-life settings. Both videos were uploaded onto the website with an explanation of the purpose of the pilot study. A short survey was inserted onto the website with a few closed questions for feedback. Following the survey, we were able to present to the committee respondents’ comments and figures showing a breakdown of respondents’ preference of video clip, thus indicating which clip was most popular as a resource for Deaf people who need information about dementia in BSL.
