Our product is a software, which allows Deaf people and any other speaker of sign language to be heard, by translating sign language to speech
It involves building video recognition technology, based on recurrent convolutional neural networks – for translating video (of ASL speaker) into text. And then text will be processed by text to speech module into audio message. The final product will be in form of an app, will use phone camera.
There are, actually, lots of interesting possible features, like making phone calls (usually deaf people have to text messages), embed the tech into Skype, translate English to ASL, or ASL to Spanish, French or Chinese. And ASL is only one of the sign languages, there are lots of others.
