Sign language interpreters are Expensive and long.
The solutions available on the market have not yet solved the problem
Innovativeness. The solution works on the basis of neural networks. The gesture is recognized by means of video fixation and recognition algorithm and displayed as text or played by sound.
Scalability the Technology is integrated into interactive information stands that already exist in most airports, shopping malls and MFC. A person chooses “start translation”, a video recording window appears, a deaf person plays a phrase with gestures and it instantly appears on the screen as a text. The solution works with any video camera. This allows for a few hours to implement the technology on the object.
The Product will bring real profit in the amount of maintenance costs in the state of sign language interpreters. We bring profit to shopping centers in the amount of income from work with the attracted audience. Thus :
solves the pain of business (the need for the provision of sign language translation services);
attract more paying audience.
