The communities of vocal impaired and deaf people who use sign language face great communication difficulties with people who use vocal languages. This project, aims to contribute towards bringing the gap closer by offering a tool which translates sign languages to written messages on an LCD display. This report discusses the different development and implementation issues including gesture modeling, sensor interfacing, sign recognition and translation. American Sign Language is widely used in different part of the world including Malaysia; therefore it is considered in this project. The proposed method utilizes five potentiometers to emulate sensor output, a microcontroller to acquire, convert, recognize, translate and display the hand gesture on the LCD unit. The translator can recognize all 26 letters, 10 numbers, and some phrases and words. The presented work is believed to be an entry to more promising and rewarding sign language translation-applications in the future.
