CyberSign was designed as an aid to the deaf community, translating text into video images of a signer using Sign Supported English, for application within personal communication and Internet browsing contexts. The prototype stage focused upon signing text from a remote source, using a series of discrete video clips of individual sentences, words and letters being signed as appropriate.
