The study aims to develop a multimedia interactive sign Language introduction for the deaf using an Android-based total communication approach. Thus, the application can be utilized by deaf persons whenever and wherever. The method used in this application development is the MDLC (Multimedia Development Life Cicle) method (Luter Sutopo, 2010) with the stages of concept, design, material colecting, assembly, testing, and distribution.
