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
