Professor creates app to translate between sign language & speech
July 2, 2017
A Brazilian professor has created an Android app that can translate sign language to speech and vice versa.
The app uses inbuilt sensors in the smartphone and helps the hearing impaired communicate better. The name of the app is Giulia, and it is attached to the users' arm. The technology can even read different accents and speeds, as well as changes in gestures.
Professor Cardoso hopes to make the technology accessible to people all over the world. His future aim is to enable communication between different sign languages. At present, the app works between Portuguese, which is the language used most widely in Brazil, and LIBRAS, which is the Brazilian sign language.
