Studying physics is tough as it is, but if you're deaf it can seem even
harder as many of the terms don't have sign language equivalents. Now
the esoteric language of physics has been translated into British Sign
Language (BSL), and made available online.

The glossary of 119 physics words includes Milky Way, ampere,
wavelength, vacuum and weightless. It should remove one of the barriers
to deaf people taking part in science.
