Signing on TV
Have you seen Tasha on the Great British Bake Off this year? She’s the show’s first deaf contestant, and we’re pleased to see a spotlight on deaf awareness and Deaf culture, including sign names.
What is a sign name?
“When we lined up outside the tent to do our first walk-in show, we were all so nervous. It was a big moment when Noel introduced not only Alison but also Daryl as part of the line-up. Seeing Daryl up at the front and feeling fully part of the show was a really special moment. I couldn’t have done it without him.”
Daryl is a qualified British Sign Language/ English interpreter who is facilitating communication between the deaf and hearing participants on the show.
