Sign2Win is a new quiz show developed by the British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust, and is the first ever TV game show that is designed for deaf people. Traditional quiz shows are not inclusive to deaf people, since they often rely on auditory cues like buzzer noises or require fast-paced answers that sign language interpreters can’t keep up with. Sign2Win utilizes games that are popular in the deaf community and plays on the unique skills deaf people have. It includes spelling games, video and picture based questions, and tests knowledge of deaf history and culture. The show is currently seeking participants, who will take home a cash prize if they win.
