Sign language is recognized as one of the most popular means of communication for deaf people. Unfortunately, the knowledge of sign language by hearing people is not widespread and this may pose unpleasant barriers between deaf and their surrounding word. The analysis of the difficulties that deaf people are still encountering in their social life, led us to design ProSign, a mobile software solution which could be adopted everywhere both by deaf people as well as by hearing people as an effective communication and learning tool in different specific situations. The paper describes the current prototype and discusses the results of the usability testing activities carried out so far.
