Understanding sign language is the most critical factor for the success of deaf pupils in educational institutions, and policymakers and researchers must focus on this aspect. Therefore, the current study investigates the effect of attitude regarding knowledge, skills, and sentiments on medical students' comprehension of sign language in Saudi Arabian educational institutions. The research also investigates the moderating effect of training seminars on the attitudes of Saudi Arabian medical students regarding their knowledge, skills, emotions, and comprehension of sign language. The study collects primary data from medical students at educational institutions using survey questionnaires. Smart-PLS was also used to examine the data sensitivity and association between variables. The results revealed that Saudi Arabian medical students' knowledge, skills, and emotions-related attitudes have a positive relationship with their understanding of sign language. The results also revealed that the training workshops substantially moderate the attitudes of Saudi Arabian medical students regarding their knowledge, skills, and emotions, as well as their comprehension of sign language. The study assists regulators in formulating rules that will enhance the understanding of sign language by applying knowledge, skills, and emotions.
