Image Based Sign Language Recognition using Neuro - Fuzzy Approach

Authors(2) :-Hemina Bhavsar, Dr. Jeegar Trivedi

Sign language is the language of deaf & dumb people. They expressed their thoughts in the form of sign language. This paper proposed sign language recognition (SLR) system which is the computerized system useful for translation of sign language into English language in the form of text. It will be use video data of deaf & dumb people and translate into English text. Proposed system recognizes both hand movements including face. Various image processing techniques are defined in this paper which will use for process the images. Convex hull feature extraction method will be applied for extract features which will classify by Neuro-Fuzzy classification approach. Recognized words will be inputted into NLP (Natural Language Processing) engine to format into the sentence.
