Probably not, considering they would have to add pictures to every study lesson.

It's not only adding picture, it's rewrite the all sites, because learning and testing sign languages and written languages, require 2 different kind of plateforms.

GUIDE I would like a new course: What should I do? - There are also links to the petitions for ASL and BSL.

Well, it would be super cool to learn sign lanuage. But sadly this is a lanuage learning site, like learning how to speak diffrent lanuages. But I wish they would..

Sign language IS a different language. It has its own grammar and its own vocabulary/idioms. It's not just using your hands to speak English.

There are obvious difficulties with putting any sign language on Duolingo, but they aren't insurmountable any more than putting Japanese on was insurmountable. It'd be good if they would consider it.

To be honest, I'd not be surprised. It's not that much of a jump from how they are implementing Japanese. The difficulty would be examining how well you do it. But that can be overcome.

It isn't Duolingo itself that start the courses, it's users that are willing to contribute and know the language. If they're not willing to contribute, then obviously the course won't be made.

Duolingo needs volunteers to create a course, true. But the power is still in their hands as they decide which of the dozens if not hundreds of languages with applicants gets added next. Sign languages may also be put on hold because the platform isn't suitable for teaching them yet.

That's true, but a course can only be started by the will of people, and people may not be willing to contribute anyway.
