Hi my name is Faraz and this is the TalkMotion blog. TalkMotion is a device that helps deaf and aphonic people to talk to anyone irrespective of whether they know the sign language. It uses a gesture detector that detects sign language gestures. These gestures are then fed into a software program that runs on an electronic device. The software converts the gestures into voice. TalkMotion can also record the voice of the other person and turn it into sign language pictures that will be displayed on the [electronic device]. So, deaf and aphonic can communicate both ways. The software is built using machine learning. Machine learning learns how to map sign language to voice and voice to sign language. This learning is done on my computer and then a prediction is calculated and loaded on the [electronic device].
