News from BBC

“Newsround will soon be accessible for people who use British Sign Language.

The new service was announced as part of the programme’s 50th Anniversary celebrations in London on 31 March.

The bulletin will be fully signed, with an in-vision interpreter, each weekday starting from 19 April.

It will be available to watch on the Newsround website.

It’s hoped the new service will help children who use BSL access news and encourage them to watch the programme.”

Newsround is already available each day with subtitles on the BBC iPlayer.
