Researchers have developed a glove that translates sign language into speech in real time which will allow deaf people to communicate directly with anyone, without the need for a translator.
The glove was developed by UCLA researchers and it can translate American Sign Language into English speech in real time through a smartphone app
The wearable device contains sensors that run along the four fingers and thumb to identify each word, phrase or letter
Its system can interpret 660 sign language hand gestures and translate them with 98.63% accuracy.
However, the glove does not translate British Sign Language, the other dominant sign language in the English-speaking countries.
