La langue des signes française, à l'usage des sourds, dans les messages audiovisuels

Abstract : This research has been based on the links between the French sign language, the natural tongue or mother-tongue of the deaf, and on the importance of this same language seen in relationship with audio-visual media aids. We have focused on the means of communication by the deaf: their social relationships, their different types of language and the importance of the French sign language, this last being the most efficient method in allowing the deaf to communicate easily and to learn spoken and written French. At the same time, we have studied the importance and the influence of the media in modern society, television being the media which reaches the greatest number of people across the world. by this means, we have noticed all the difficulties which deaf people meet confronted by the language used by French television ; translations into sign language and sub-titling being the means the most adapted to this social group. Television is, therefore, a language learning tool for the children, as well as being a means of social identification. From this basis, we have compared the importance of the place given to sign language on French television, with that of different countries, basing the comparison on the length of transmission periods per week. a greater use of the French sign language system in audio-visual communication would allow the young deaf child to learn, the adolescent to develop and the adult to express himself with ease.
