The paper describes an application for the learning of Malaysian Sign Language. The focus of the paper is on the content design, user interface and usability of the application. The paper highlights how the application was designed to incorporate local needs and culture of Malaysia. The medium of communication for the application is in Bahasa Melayu and English. It uses an animated character to illustrate the different signs. It also integrates audio and text narration for better content delivery.
