Sign language glove

A sign language glove is an electronic device which converts the complex motions of a sign language into written or spoken words.

A young inventor on a Fulbright scholarship announced a working model in 2003,[citation needed] and the US Army is also developing a battlefield model.[citation needed]

A model being currently created at the University of Reading is one of the few to utilise two hands, attempt signs that involve motion, and make it relevant to British Sign Language (BSL).

An alternative to converting sign language to audio in real-time is to do a Hand-Over by recording hand motions while simultaneously playing back pre-recorded arm motions. The data could then be played back, edited, or used to drive an audio program.
