Inspiration

Bridge the gap between deaf people and their peers.

What it does

Translates speech or text to sign language to help users learn sign language and communicate with peers that use sign language.

How we built it

We used Microsoft Azure's Speech SDK in an Android application written in Java and wrote parsing logic on text.

Challenges we ran into

Coming up with an idea and setting up the project uniformly was more than half the battle. Additionally, we had minor difficulties with version control.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Successfully translating speech to text to sign language.

What we learned

Azure is lit.

What's next for Peace

  • Peace is easily extendable as long as we add more words to the dictionary.
  • We can also add context meaning, since not all words are used in the same context all the time.
  • A history of sentences/translations
