ASL Dataset

Recommended Posts

Hello!

  My name is Kyle Gagnon. I am a junior in university. My major is Computer Science. Now the introduction is out of the way I need your help!

Why am I here?

I need help developing a software that can begin to recognize American Sign Language. The goal of the project as of now is to recognize the Alphabet. I want to make it an app so that it is available for everyone to use. I understand that there are plenty of programs and apps out there but I want to make one my own and improve upon it.

What do I need?

As of now I have a very limited dataset. What that means is I do have some pictures to help teach the computer what the sign is but it is very limited. There will be a very rare case where somebody's hand will be highlighted in a dark room. So I need pictures from everyone of the alphabet in sign. I do have a small criteria on how I need it to be done.

Criteria

I need you to take a picture of either hand (can be your dominant or not) and take a picture of it (I will attach an example). Preferably a well enough lit room but doesn't have to be. It does not have to be center at all. I just need your hand in whatever shape you make. If you can do all 26 letters please. If you only do one anything helps at all! You do not need any editing on the picture just leave it as is! Again the picture I attached is to show kind of what I need.

 

I want to thank you for your time for reading this! I wish you all the best!

    • Hi Everyone,    I'm a teacher dealing with changing times, so I figured I would take ASL (something I always wanted to do). I took Sign 101 in college and it was horrible. Terrible teacher. I'm pretty much teaching myself. It's hard being the student and not the teacher. 😔
    • Hi, I'm a novelist, and in one of my series, I have a deaf character. Here are a few sentences from my latest book. Could someone confirm that I am describing this ASL correctly?     Carly’s eyes also filled with tears, something that rarely happens. One spilled down her cheek. “I’m okay with those photos, but what about you, bro?”     I pointed to my chest and slid my hand down, then put the four fingers of my right hand against my chin and pulled them away into the palm of
    • Hi, everyone! If any of you are available on the weekends, I could chat with you on Zoom.  I'm still finding out if my workplace will re-open next week so if they don't, I could do weekdays too.
