About Project

Problème : Quel problème ce projet essaie-t-il d'adresser ?

Real-time communication between a speech impaired person and others who do not know sign language is not possible without the involvement of an interpreter. This impacts millions of speech impaired people around the world and those who want to communicate with them.

Solution: Quelle est la solution proposée? S.v.p soyez précis!

Using the gesture detection capabilities of motion sensing devices like Microsoft Kinect for Windows, we are building a system which detects sign language used by Speech impaired user and convert the sign into its equivalent text. This text is then transmitted to other user who does not know sign language, through a chat program. This text can also be converted into equivalent speech output using a Text-to-speech engine. The other user then responds back by typing text into the chat program or speech which is converted back into equivalent text and transmitted back to the speech impaired person. This text is displayed on Speech impaired person's screen enabling a bi-directional real-time communication
Impact: How does it Work

Exemple : Faites nous découvrir comment cette solution fait la différence en utilisant un ou plusieurs exemples concrets ; en incluant aussi ses activités principales.

Consider a person (Jim) who is employee of an IT services company. Jim is technically strong but he is speech impaired. As he works with other members of his team who are not speech impaired and do not understand sign language, the only way he can communicate with them is through a text chat or Emails. This form of communication is slow and can be painful for long discussions. Also, Jim can't participate in any video conference meeting as he cannot speak. Our solution will equip Jim with the power of converting his sign language gestures to equivalent text and speech, so that he can communicate with others in real-time and participate in video conference meeting. Its like giving him a voice.

Histoire de votre fondation

The idea came to my mind in July 2011 when I was playing a Kinect enabled game on my XBOX 360 gaming console. Kinect brings in a new way of gaming where players are not required to use a controller, instead the Kinect sensor detects the player's body movements and steers the game accordingly. Kinect for Windows SDK was launched few months back, which opened up a lot of possibilities for developers who want to take Kinect beyond gaming. As I was playing, the idea about making a social change came into my mind. The idea was to use Kinect's motion and gesture tracking capabilities to read sign language used by Speech impaired people and use it for communication with others.

Impact social
Jusqu'à ce jour, quels résultats a obtenu votre projet ?

We are in the initial stage of this project and have completed a proof of concept, wherein we have been able to read some hand gestures and transmit its text and speech equivalent to other user through Internet chat program. The project is not currently in a state where it can be used by a speech impaired person (as we don't have a complete sign language dictionary built into the system) but we are working towards it.

Quel est l'impact prévu pour votre projet sur les 1 à 3 prochaines années?

It has a potential to impact millions of Speech impaired people in the next 1 to 3 years.

Quels sont les obstacles qui risquent de freiner votre projet ? Comment pensez-vous les surmonter ?

The major barrier is ability to read all sign gestures and movement used by Speech impaired people and interpret them correctly. We are working on that and hope to overcome it in the next few months.

Viabilité
