Any accessible iOS app to learn American Sign Language, or at least some?

iOS and iPadOS
Hello, Does anyone know of an accessible app to learn American Sign Language, or at least one that has some signs in ASL? The ones I've seen so far are completely visual, and show people resembling the signs on screen. There are people who know ASL and are blind, so I was wondering if there's any app for iOS which may be able to help with this?

The best suggestion I can give to get you started is to use the Nook app and buy a book called "signing: How to Speak with your hands". by Elaine Costello. Each page has a sign on it in the form of an image, but there are also text descriptions for each sign on how exactly to do them. However, you must first become familiar with the various hand shapes for the manual alphabet, or this book will not be worth your while. It's quite a problem, I've struggled with the same thing here.
