Glove that translates sign language into speech
January 21, 2017
A student in the United Kingdom has developed a glove that translates sign language into speech.
Hadeel Ayoub, who designed the smart glove, says that it translates the wearer's hand movements into text and then into speech.
She worked on the design for two years as part of her PhD project. By translating speech in real time, it can allow people with speech disabilities to communicate without having an interpreter or someone to communicate on their behalf.
The glove works on its own and is not dependent on any smart device, or network.
