Abstract

This paper summarizes the findings of a questionnaire conducted with the Deaf community infrancophone Europe. It aimed to gather feedback on specific features to be included in the sign language videos of BabelDr, a medical speech-to-sign translation platform. The results show that the whole sentence should be subtitled, the signer should be shown front-o n only, and the background should be of a light colour. Explanatory images can be added to clarify the medical content. Lastly, human videos are preferred to avatars in this specific context, even if more than a third of the respondents think that an avatar could be useful in this context.
