Glove-based systems represent one of the most important efforts aimed at acquiring hand movement data. Generally dumb people use sign language for communication but they find difficulty in communicating with others who do not understand sign language. It is based on the need of developing an electronic device that can translate sign language into speech in order to make the communication take place between the mute communities with the general public possible, a Wireless data gloves is used…

Electronic Glove: A Teaching AID for the Hearing Impaired
TLDR
E-Glove provides a simple, accurate, reliable, cheap, speedy gesture recognition and user-friendly teaching aid for the instructors that are teaching sign language to the deaf and mute community.
Gesture Aided Speech for Deaf and Mute
TLDR
An attempt has been made to develop a system which consists of Flex sensors attached with the Data gloves along all fingers which converts hand gestures into an audio output to interpret the expression and reduces the communication gap that exists between mute and ordinary people.
Electronic speaking system for speech impaired people: Speak up
Sign Language is the only way of communication for speech impaired people. But general people can't understand the sign language so it becomes difficult for a speech impaired person to communicate

Generally sign language is used by deafmute people for communication but they find difficulty in communicating with people who do not understand sign language and often they need a support for
Full Duplex Communication System for Deaf & Dumb People
One of the important problems that our society faces is that people with disabilities are finding it hard to cope up with the fast growing technology. The access to communication technologies has
Sign language interpreter using a smart glove
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel approach of interpreting the sign language using the portable smart glove, where LED-LDR pair on each finger senses the signing gesture and couples the analog voltage to the microcontroller.

Hand gesture recognition using hidden Markov models
TLDR
This research is intended to draw and edit graphic elements by hand gestures by adopting more diverse input features representing more dynamic features of hand gestures, and has had good recognition results on a pre-confined test environment.
Improving continuous gesture recognition with spoken prosody
TLDR
A computational framework for improving continuous gesture recognition based on two phenomena that capture voluntary (co-articulation) and involuntary (physiological) contributions of prosodic synchronization is presented.
Real-time gesture recognition by learning and selective control of visual interest points
TLDR
This paper developed a selective control method to equip the recognition system with self-load monitoring and controlling functionality, and shows that the approach provides robust recognition with respect to such factors as type of clothing, type of gesture, extent of motion trajectories, and individual differences in motion characteristics.
