Automatic 3D sign language animation
Computer Vision

 



Project Description:
 

Currently, human Sign Language translators are essential for effective communication between Deaf and hearing presenters and their audiences. Good sign language translators are in high demand and are not always available for extremely short interactions. That means that communication among hearing and Deaf may be impaired or non-existent, to the detriment of both groups. In the United States sign language is the preferred language for over a 500,000 people.
An automatic English to Sign Language translator would give Deaf people greater access to the hearing world. The goal of the project is to develop an automatic synthesis of 3D sign language animation for a given text input (possible integration with given speech recognition engine).
The project poses many great challenges with one of them is the fact that Sign language has it own unique grammar and is different from English as any other natural language.



Project Goal:
 

In this project we will develop and implement an application.
