Max the Brave and All About Spot are two of the exciting new titles Huawei are adding to the StorySign library this year.

In 2018, we created StorySign for Huawei, a free app that uses the power of AI to translate selected children’s books into sign language, delivered by Star, our friendly signing avatar. StorySign uses the power of Huawei’s AI to create an authentic reading experience, translating popular children’s books into sign language, helping to open the world of books to deaf children and their families. 

These new books are just one part of Huawei’s ongoing commitment to using its technology to open up the world of books to deaf children and their families.

Walter Ji, President of Huawei’s Western Europe Consumer Business Group, said: “At Huawei, we always put people first, and we are always looking for new ways to use our technology to make the world a better place. We are committed to making sure every child has the chance to enjoy story time, and we will continue to work with our StorySign partners to expand our library and raise awareness of the challenges deaf children face when learning to read".

All new books will once again come alive with Star, the app’s child-friendly avatar developed in partnership with world-class studio Aardman Animations, alongside input from experts in the deaf community. Star translates a range of classic and contemporary children’s stories into sign language in real-time, creating a seamless reading experience, allowing deaf children to foster deep connections with their families.

StorySign can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store and the Huawei AppGallery in eleven countries across Western Europe and Australia.
