Interpreter Glove for Deaf People

Instituto Tecnologico Superior Paysandu, Paysandu, URUGUAY

The purpose of this project is to improve the quality of life that a deaf girl in my city (PaysandĂș - PaysandĂș - Uruguay) I created an electronic glove, which is able to recognize the position of each finger and the movements of the hand in the space, which function together with a computer and interpret the sign language and play "voice" by the speakers. The other part of the system function as follow: listen to the speaker person, creating a text with what person says and when person say the voice command "play" it's start to translate text to sign language in images that represent what persons said. Apart from that, the system allows users to calibrate the glove to adapt to her hand and add, edit (updated the meaning to a sign or the sign to a meaning) or delete signs as the user want. In addition I incorporate the possibility to use the glove as a mouse in 3 dimensions to move or click. The project not only could be useful for that girl and also for all deaf people in the world
