Inclusiveness/accessibility for British Sign Language users
University of Glasgow is trying to increase access for British Sign Language (BSL) users and one of the easiest ways is for staff to highlight within their external email signature that anyone who uses BSL can use the Scottish Government's 'contactSCOTLAND-BSL' service.
This allows a BSL user to contact a public service via a trained BSL interpreter who will speak to a staff member on their behalf.
All that's required is to add the following statement (including the hyperlink to this service, which is https://contactscotland-bsl.org/) to our external email signature:
"British Sign Language (BSL) users can contact me direct by using contactScotland-BSL"
More information about University of Glasgow's BSL action plan is available here.
