Automated Translation of Sign Language Into Text Is Now a Reality

University of Aberdeen (10/03/12) Jennifer Phillips

University of Aberdeen researchers are developing technology that can automatically translate sign language into text.  The researchers say the software is the first of its kind and has the potential to revolutionize how sign language users communicate.  "The aim of the technology known as the Portable Sign language Translator is to empower sign language users by enabling them to overcome communication challenges through portable technology," says Aberdeen professor Ernesto Compatangelo.  He says the application can be used on various types of mobile devices, enabling users to customize sign language to their own specific needs.  "The user signs into a standard camera integrated into a laptop, netbook, smartphone, or other portable device such as a tablet," and the signs are immediately translated into text that can be read by the person they are conversing with, Compatangelo says.
