SINGAPORE – Sunday’s (Aug 21) National Day Rally will be the 10th since 2012 to have a sign language interpreter convey Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s speech – the most important political one of the year.

From 2012 to 2019, it was a collaboration with the Singapore Association for the Deaf (SADeaf) while in 2021 it was by national broadcaster Mediacorp.

It will also mark the sixth year that captions, open or closed, are provided by national broadcaster Mediacorp so viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing can read what he says.
