The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities requests "Nothing about us without us." User-centered methodological research is the way to comply with this convention. Interaction with the deaf community must be in their language; hence sign language questionnaires are one of the tools to gather data. While in the past interacting with an online video questionnaire was out of the question, today it is a reality. This article focuses on the design of an interactive video questionnaire for sign language users. From a historical review of the existing literature on research methods and previous sign language questionnaire, the article examines the design features affected in the process of making accessible questionnaires with sign language videos: format and layout. The article finishes with the solution developed toward mainstreaming sign language questionnaires in order to contribute to a diverse and inclusive society for all citizens.
