We want to integrate technology and help people with use American Sign Languages (ASL) to communicate.
What it does
It has the capability to translate a limited ASL dictionary into speech.
How I built it
We use Leap Motion to read the finger motions such as numbers and letters where it translates the motions into a speech through Nuance's SDK. We also use Myo Armband to read more complicated motions that involves big movements to translate them into speech.
Challenges I ran into
Finding the right pattern to recognize ASL and to get a better accuracy of using tech
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are able to combine Nuance technology with the Leap Motion and Myo.
What I learned
We learn more about ASL and Wearables.
What's next for D-SIGN
We would like to make communication to be more practical and accessible
