New techology aid – converting sign to speech

This month news of the latest technology device to aid communication between sign languages and non signers was released. This aid is based on gloves that use a combination of different sensors and other electronic components to convert the movements of the person wearing the gloves into speech via a text-to-speech unit.

Check out the maker’s presentation to a Canadian audience. Note the interpreter is not using BSL and speech is in French. But there are subtitles!!!
