A system for teaching sign language using live gesture feedback
Kelly, Daniel; McDonald, John; Markham, Charles
This paper presents a computer vision based virtual learning environment for teaching communicative hand gestures used in Sign Language. A virtual learning environment was developed to demonstrate signs to the user. The system then gives real time feedback to the user on their performance of the demonstrated sign. Gesture features are extracted from a standard web-cam video stream and shape and trajectory matching techniques are applied to these features to determine the feedback given to the user.
