Abstract

The aim of this paper is to help the communication of two people, one hearing impaired and one visually impaired by converting speech to fingerspelling and fingerspelling to speech. Fingerspelling is a subset of sign language, and uses finger signs to spell letters of the spoken or written language. We aim to convert finger spelled words to speech and vice versa. Different spoken languages and sign languages such as English, Russian, Turkish and Czech are considered.
