One of the items at risk is SC 1.2.6, sign language.

I recently came across the following message at 

Vibelle: Portal für Gehörlose Berufsein- und -umsteiger ist online
Vibelle unterstützt Gehörlose Menschen bei der 
Berufsqualifizierung in den Bereichen Deutsch und 
Mathematik. Alle Inhalte sind als Deutsche 
Gebärden Sprache (DGS) Videos dargestellt. Jede 
zweite Woche erscheint eine neue Sendung "Vibelle TV".

(Quick translation:)
Vibelle: Portal for Deaf Job Starters and Job Changers Online
Vibelle supports persons who are deaf with job 
qualification in the areas German and 
mathematics. All content is available in German 
Sign Language videos. A new broadcast of "Vibelle 
TV" is aired every other week.

The URL is <http://www.vibelle.de/>.

I have seen other sites that offer sign language 
versions of web pages or parts of web pages (for 
<http://gebaren.ugent.be/?film=film>) but Vibelle 
is more consistent than other ones I've seen.
Unfortunately, the site does not meet a number of 
success criteria, but that is not the point of this message.

Best regards,


Please don't invite me to LinkedIn, Facebook, 
Quechup or other "social networks". You may have 
agreed to their "privacy policy", but I haven't.
