Platform translates sign language into speech in real time
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently.

Sign language is a great tool to help deaf and hearing impaired communicate with those who can understand it. Unfortunately, most non-deaf people don’t have an impetus to learn it unless they regularly speak with deaf people. Innovations such as the Ukraine-based Enable Talk has already attempted to tackle this problem by developing smart gloves that can translate sign language into speech in real time. Approaching it from a different angle is the Dubai startup KinTrans, whose Hands Can Talk project has developed software using Microsoft Kinect technology that detects hand gestures and converts it into audible words for a non-deaf audience.
