Emirati citizen Fatima Al-Mannai, who is the first sign language interpreter in Dubai Courts, sought to be an electronic trainer to spread and teach sign language to several groups in society by organizing voluntary electronic courses to teach sign language to citizens and residents .

The courses witnessed a great turnout as the number of participants exceeded 1,600 people who wanted to learn sign language to achieve communication with the deaf and mute people of determination.

Fatima Al-Mannai told “Emirates Today” that she used her specialization in translating sign language for the deaf and mute to teach sign language through social media applications including “Snapchat” and “Instagram” to reach a large number of segments of society.

She continued: “Learning sign language is no less important than learning other languages, as it helps to achieve communication with an important group in society, the deaf and mute, and push it towards production and creativity in various fields.”

Al-Mannai, who is a member of the International Federation of the Deaf and the International Federation of Translators, added: “I was keen to translate some of the various events and activities in the country into sign language in a visual way through social media platforms to ensure that interested parties benefit from the deaf and dumb.”

She continued: “I have several presentations in sign language at a number of local events and many describe me as (an ambassador for the deaf and mute) as I convey to them what is going on in the community and what is going on in their minds to those around me.”
