Sign language spotting is the task of detection and recognition of signs (words in the predefined vocabulary) and fingerspellings (a combination of continuous alphabets that are not found in signs) in a signed utterance. The internal structures of signs and fingerspellings differ significantly. Therefore, it is difficult to spot signs and fingerspellings simultaneously. In this paper, a novel method for spotting signs and fingerspellings is proposed, which can distinguish signs, fingerspellings… CONTINUE READING
