Hand in hand: automatic sign Language to English translation (2007)

Abstract In this paper, we describe the first data-driven automatic sign-language-to- speech translation system. While both sign language (SL) recognition and translation techniques exist, both use an intermediate notation system not directly intelligible for untrained users. We combine a SL recognizing framework with a state-of-the-art phrase-based machine translation (MT) system, using corpora of both American Sign Language and Irish Sign Language data. In a set of experiments we show the overall results and also illustrate the importance of including a vision-based knowledge source in the development of a complete SL translation system.
