Recognition of Isolated Indian Sign Language Gesture in Real Time

  title={Recognition of Isolated Indian Sign Language Gesture in Real Time},
  author={Anup Nandy and J. S. Prasad and Soumik Mondal and P. Chakraborty and G. Nandi},
Indian Sign Language (ISL) consists of static as well as dynamic hand gestures for communication among deaf and dumb persons. [...] Key Method Direction histogram is the feature used for classification due to its appeal for illumination and orientation invariance. Two different approaches utilized for recognition are Euclidean distance and K-nearest neighbor metrics.Expand
