IBM Voice-to-Sign Language Translation Tech

By admin - Thu May 03, 5:56 am

IBM has developed a system called SiSi (Say It Sign It) that automatically converts the spoken word into Sign Language which is then signed by an animated digital character or avatar. This technology has the potential to enable a person giving a presentation in business or education to have a digital character projected behind them signing what they are saying.

    I just start to learn ASL recently, am hard of hearing. I can sign some simple words now. I joined a great deaf daing site, —-Deafornot dot c om—-, and met some good deaf/HOH friends over there. They help me to learn ASL.

    Thanks Pete, I don’t know BSL, only ASL and I assumed…

    That would be because the signs are BSL, not ASL. I certainly see a “my name” there, though I couldn’t pick out any fingerspelling of “Joe”. Some names have their own signs in BSL though (eg Oliver is holding a bowl, like Oliver Twist) so there might have been a sign for Joe that I didn’t recognise (I’m very much a BSL beginner). It did end with “I like signing”, too.

    well the signing has to be correct. More than half the time I have used IBM’s voice to speech recognition program it has failed to properly identify the words I say. Also, in this example, I never see the sign language interpreter say “My name is” and then correctly spell the name, which is the appropriate ASL method of introduction. Maybe she’s just so small I can’t make out her signs correctly…

    Why doesn’t some sign-language practioner person, with a big vocabulary, make a video response saying to all those people who have difficulty thinking about ‘what a third person might be thinking’, what is going on, in this harmless video.
    Such a video would be of no use to all those non-understanding viewers, who have without realising, an inferiority complex.
    Those folk are already eligibe for free N.H.S. psychotherapeutic tutoring; there’s no waiting list.

    @trainsforyou there are roughly over a million Deaf people in the uk alone. Add to that the thousands of hearing people who know sign language that makes a fair percentage of the population who can sign. Also the majority of signed programs are put on in the middle of the night so I think it’s only fair that some of the news is signed for them during normal daytime hours and people such as yourself show more respect.

    There are numerous websites that offer online American Sign Language learning. Some of the websites just offer a list of words and grammar to help you learn. However, some sites will offer an organized and structured way to learn online American Sign Language. In general, all of us learn a language from a structured approach. Learning American Sign Language has to be just that; organized and structured.
