Abstract :

The biggest issue today is the increasing gap between the impaired people and the normal people. Sign Language Recognition System is to facilitate the communication between people with hearing impairment (i.e. deaf people) as well as dumb people and normal people. In addition, an efficient pattern matching technique for automatic translation system for gestures of numbers, alphabets and words in the sign language and from the sign language to its respective numbers, alphabets and words is proposed. The proposed technique does not rely on the use of any gloves or visual markings to accomplish the recognition job. The proposed system uses the concept of Boundary Tracing and Pattern Matching. As an alternative, it deals with images of bare hands, which allows the user to interact with the system in a natural way.
