Abstract

In this paper we present the design and development of a mobile application that assists learners of British Sign Language. The application uses interaction; namely, image recognition of a participant's gestures to give feedback as to the correctness of the gestures. Through designing with different algorithms and a user test, the efficacy of such an application is presented along with limitations that are present with current technology.
