"Sign language to be converted to text "


Researchers in Scotland have designed a software program which instantly translates sign language into type which can be read on a computer screen.The technology can help deaf people.

A normal camera is used to record the user's hand signals, which are imported into the computer program and translated into written text so that the person the user is conversing with can read it without needing to understand sign language.

Researchers now hope to develop the basic program, known as the Portable Sign Language Translator (PSLT), into an "app" which could be used on PCs, laptops, tablets, smart phones and other portable devices.The program was developed by Aberdeen University scientists
