American and Russian Sign Language Dactyl Recognition and Text2Sign Translation

P. 309-320.

Sign language is the main way to communicate for people from deaf community. However, common people mostly do not know sign language. In this paper, we overview several real-time sign language dactyl recognition systems using deep convolutional neural networks. These systems are able to recognize dactylized words gestured by signs for each letter. We evaluate our approach on American (ASL) and Russian (RSL) sign languages. This solution may help fasten the process of communication for deaf people. On the contrary, we also present the algorithm for generating sign animation from text information using text-to-sign video vocabulary, which helps to integrate sign language in dubbed TV and combining with speech recognition tool provide full translation from natural language to sign language.
