ASL Dataset

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!

    • Just start now, and see how it changes over time, as you learn ASL, trying to be perfect now only slows you down.
    • Hello! I'm sorry if this is not the right forum for this question. I wasn't sure where it would go best! I am an artist currently working on a comic. One of the characters is not deaf but rather is unable to speak, and he communicates via sign language. Because a comic is a visual but non-moving medium, I'm trying to figure out the best way to show this. My thoughts right now is to do a couple of panels of him signing main ideas and providing a text translation, since I know it would be imp

    • There are a few youtube channels that are more obscure that can help, especially "Read with ASL" google it with the word youtube appended.  Others are at a more intermediate level, like "IntermediateASL", "ASLInteractive", and of course Bill Vicars.  Talk to Deaf people in your city for both advice and connections.  Go to your community college and ask to talk to an ASL teacher, and tell them about everything.  Find a Deaf club/group in your city, but in-person is much better, especially if they
