The rapid advancement in communication technology has shrunk the world to a global village. But there is still a part of the society impotent in expressing ideas verbally. It is high time to break the barriers faced by vocally challenged people. “Sign language interpreter” is an electronic device that translates
the sign language into speech by the use of gesture mapping thereby bridging the communication gap between the vocally challenged community and
normal community, facilitating efficient communication. This system recognizes the hand gestures with the help of specially designed gloves fitted with flex sensors along the length of finger and an accelerometer.
