Hand Gesture Recognition : Sign to Voice System ( S 2 V )

  title={Hand Gesture Recognition : Sign to Voice System ( S 2 V )},
  author={O. Foong and Tan Jung Low and T. SatrioWibowo},
Hand gesture is one of the typical methods used in sign language for non-verbal communication. It is most commonly used by people who have hearing or speech problems to communicate among themselves or with normal people. Various sign language systems have been developed by manufacturers around the globe but they are neither flexible nor cost-effective for the end users. This paper presents a system prototype that is able to automatically recognize sign language to help normal people to… Expand
