Standard sign language set for national anthem

Authorities have rolled out a set of rules on how to present China's national anthem in sign language, the latest effort to promote the use of standardized sign language among the nation's estimated 27 million hearing-impaired people.

Cheng Kai, vice-chairman of the China Disabled Persons' Federation, which oversees disability policymaking and welfare promotion, inaugurated the rules on Monday at a factory owned by Beijing Dabao Cosmetics.

About 65 percent of the factory's 202 workers have hearing disabilities.

The rules were rolled out by the federation, the Ministry of Education and the National Working Committee on Languages. They were approved by the committee in September.
