Sign Language Synthesis for the Mobile Environments


This paper describes the synthesis of sign-language animation for mobile environments. Sign language is synthesized by using either the motion-capture or motion-primitive method. An editing system can add facial expressions, mouth shapes and gestures to the sign-language CG animation. Sign-language animation is displayed on PDA screens to inform the user of his/her mobile environment.
