Today is International Day of Sign Language, celebrating the diversity of sign languages across the world.
AUSLAN is the main sign language spoken in Australia, and Expression Australia launched an app called Auslan Anywhere, where it shows different expressions the community normally asks to the hearing-impaired community.
While there are not concrete numbers of Australians using AUSLAN, it is estimated that around 3 million hearing-impaired Australians communicate with AUSLAN.
