Recognising the signs

An intelligent bracelet can help people with hearing difficulties participate in conversations.

During online meetings, the screen usually displays the person who is speaking through an integrated microphone. Not, however, when call participants are communicating by sign language.

Until now. A Toronto-based startup is working on a solution using artificial intelligence, which recognises sign language and is able to detect who is signing in videos. Allowing businesses and public platforms to better integrate those affected.

Work is also underway to create smartphone apps which can translate sign language into speech. Making games more inclusive for those with hearing difficulties is on the agenda as well.
