Dynamic Sign Language Recognition Based on Real-Time Videos
Keywords:Dynamic sign language, recognition, deep learning, convLSTM
Sign language is the main communication tool for the deaf and hard of hearing. Deaf people cannot interact with others without a sign language interpreter. Accordingly, sign language recognition automation has become an important application in artificial intelligence and deep learning. Specifically, the recognition of Arabic sign language has been studied using many smart and traditional methods. This research provides a system to recognize dynamic Saudi sign language based on real time videos to solve this problem. We constructed a dataset for Saudi sign language in terms of videos in the proposed system. The dataset was then used to train a deep learning model using convolutional long short-term memory (convLSTM) to recognize the dynamic signs. Implementing such a system provides a platform for deaf people to interact with the rest of the world without an interpreter to reduce deaf isolation in society.
