Arabic sign language recognition in user-independent mode

In this paper we present a method for recognizing isolated Arabic sign language gestures in a user-independent mode. The proposed method requires that signers wear gloves to simplify the process of segmenting out the hands of the signer via color segmentation. The consecutive frame differences of the segmented signing hands are then thresholded and accumulated into two static images that preserve the motion information. Special accumulation strategy is employed to maintain the directionality of… CONTINUE READING
