Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Sign language translation system. Reflectors on female signer's face monitor facial movements she makes while using sign language. The movements will be duplicated by a virtual woman on computer. The virtual system can translate speech, for example of a shop assistant, or text, such as television subtitles, into sign language for deaf people. The woman's hand, torso and arm movements will also be recorded while she signs words. This provides motion-capture data that is used with a linguistic translation program, allowing a virtual woman to provide real-time sign language in the work place & at home. Photographed at Tele- virtual in England, who co-developed the system.
