Research in the field of sign language recognition has not yet addressed the problem of interpersonal variance in large vocabulary on the classification level. Current recognition systems are designed for signer-dependent operation. Applied to signer-independent tasks, they show poor performance even when increasing the number of training signers. Better results can be achieved with dedicated adaptation methods. This paper describes a vision-based recognition system that quickly adapts to… CONTINUE READING
