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 new member. I've checked out this place, and it's awesome! I tried to upload a picture but, there to big lol. I'll keep trying. Anyway, I know some ASL. Pretty vague huh, my apologies. Long story short, there was a accident I lost me long term memory, and my short term is iffy. There is a but in there I promise lol. I use to know ASL. For some reason I am connecting with signing. I mean I understand it for the most part. I want to continue at it. I'm hard of hearing and I have Minerese Disease. I'm open to making some friends and chatting. Please know I'm a very patient person, hope you are.  Thanks for reading and hope to get some replies.  EM 😊  
    • Hi, It's not a poem or a song, but I figured that my post belonged in this creative section.  I thought users might be interested in a simple Happy Birthday ecard that I have animated using ASL.  If it is well received, I hope to do more in the future. Here's a link:  https://www.123greetings.com/birthday/happy_birthday/signing_birthday_bear.html I hope you like it.
    • Hello, I am a senior in high school,  learning ASL. I was talking to my teacher, when she mentioned that you can only get your name in ASL with someone deaf giving it to you. Is this true? 
    • Hi Lori -  Let's start with the easy question - what time zone are you in?
