Deaf and severely hearing impaired people communicate in sign language. For most it is their first language and is considered by many as their native language. It is a(an independent) separate language and is very different to the spoken and written language. The DEAF MAGAZINE communicates in both of these languages. 
It is a life-style and society magazine about the culture of german sign language. Through the use of mixed media and augmented reality technology, it links the written language directly with the german sign language and makes it easier to his readers
to affiliate information and allows to a better understanding of the written language. It also opens up even hearing readers, access to the german deaf culture. The DEAF MAGAZINE constitutes, articles about events and trends of the culture of german sign language, special personalities, news and opinions to the accessibility in Germany and trips to the deaf culture of other countries.
