European startup develops technology that translates sign language automatically
A startup company called SignAll from Hungary in Europe has created a technology to translate sign language automatically.
The company is using a system of cameras and a depth sensor that allows the signer to sign freely and their signed words appear on the screen for other people to understand and communicate.
SignAll is developed to promote sign language for the deaf people. Sign language is the first language for people who are born deaf and spoken English is their second language.
The idea is to make daily life of deaf people using sign language easier. Deaf people can take SignAll to the bank, pharmacy, a car shop, school, work and anywhere.
SignAll is still in prototype stage and one can see the working prototype at CES 2018 in Las Vegas from 9 to 12 January 2018.
