This subcorpus is part of the Corpus of Finnish Sign Language collected in the CFINSL project. The subcorpus comprises elicited narratives from 21 Finnish Sign Language signers who belong to different age groups and live in different parts of Finland. The material covers three fixed tasks performed by the signers: narrating about short cartoon strips, narrating about a video, and narrating a story from a picture book (The Snowman or Frog, Where are you?).

The material consists of video files and the annotations of the videos in ELAN format as well as the metadata about the signers and the content and format of the videos. All of the video data (15,25 hours x six camera angles) has been annotated for signs and translations.
