The ELo project, in which I participate, aims to create a sign language tutor for deaf and hearing impaired children (age 3-5) to practice sign language. At the TU Delft, where I work, we develop and supply the gesture recognition technology. To train and test the recognizer we are recording a dataset. We are recording 121 signs with as many people as we can to capture natural variation.

Deaf kids can use the Electronic Learning Environment (ELo) for some extra practice , like any kid nowadays has some educational games on daddy’s computer. It’s just in sign language.

Do you want to participate? It will take you an hour of recording in our studio at the TU Delft. Traveling expenses will be covered. Use of the data will be restricted. Mail me for more info.
