Sign Language Learner

Introduction

We designed a device that can aid in learning the alphabet in American Sign Language. We built a glove with various sensors to identify the hand position of the user closely and use that to give feedback on what they are doing right or wrong through the LCD display for each letter in the alphabet. The program detects how much the fingers are bent, contact between them, and hand orientation to determine this. The reason behind this project was to facilitate basic ASL learning for people that don’t necessarily need it, or may have someone in their lives with a hearing impairment. It means a lot when people that don’t have this difficulty learn or make an effort to learn ASL and facilitate communication, helping us to be more understanding and sensitive to those who don’t have the option of learning spoken languages.
