Now, 'Uni' tablet that translates signs into spoken language

Uni tabletWashington, Oct 31 : A new company has created a tablet case ' Uni' that can translate sign language into spoken words.

A San Francisco-based start up MotionSavvy, has embedded the tablet with motion-sensing technology that could capture sign language and translate it into text, CBS reported.

Using Leap Motion, a motion-sensing technology, a camera would sense the movements of hands and fingers, down to individual joints, from up to a foot away. The software would then interpret the signs, check them against a growing database of signs and translate them into spoken word.

To enable true conversation, the software would also transcribe spoken word into text so a deaf person could read it. (ANI)
