New app to translate spoken word into sign language
In an attempt to bridge the communication gap between hearing and the deaf, a new app named Holohear has been developed to translate the spoken word into sign language.
When someone speaks aloud, a 3D holographic model shows the sentence using American Sign Language (ASL) to the deaf person and can also teach sign language to a hearing person.
The developers are working on the app to make it fully functional and reach out to people’s smartphones for future communications.
