We translate sign language. Automatically.

Introducing SignAll

SignAll is pioneering the first automated sign language translation solution, based on computer vision and natural language processing (NLP), to enable everyday communication between people with normal and impaired hearing. The SignAll prototype is currently able to translate part of an ASL user’s vocabulary. According to research professionals and leading tech companies, SignAll is the best automatic sign language translation system available worldwide. We believe that the boundaries between hearing and hearing impaired people can be removed by technology. We are working for a world where the hearing impaired can communicate with other people spontaneously and effectively - anytime, anywhere.

100,000,000 people

Over 100 million people - more than 1% of the world’s population - are unable to hear. Being deaf from birth or childhood, many of these people use sign language as their primary form of communication.

There are about 300 sign languages around the world. One of the most common of these is American Sign Language (ASL). More than 500,000 people use ASL in the US alone, and millions more use it worldwide.

Most hearing people don’t know that people born deaf also find it difficult to express themselves in writing. They usually need the help of an interpreter even to run a simple errand, which would be quick and easy for an unimpaired person.

  • The Prototype

    The prototype uses 3 ordinary web cameras, 1 depth sensor and an average PC.

    The depth sensor is placed in front of the sign language user at chest height and the cameras are placed around them. This allows the shape and the path of the hands and gestures to be tracked continuously. The PC syncs up and processes the images taken from different angles in real-time.

    Having identified the signs from the images, a natural language processing module transforms the signs into grammatically correct, fully formed sentences. This enables communication by making sign language understandable to everyone.

    The prototype has a modular construction, which allows components to be replaced as technology improves. This means that SignAll will be become faster, smaller and even more accurate over time.

    Insight into SignAll's Complexity

    Most people think that sign language is just about different hand movements. Sign language is actually much more complex than that.

    Research has shown that fully automated sign language recognition requires a solution that combines all of the important factors. That is why - according to computer vision experts - the automated interpretation of sign language is one of the biggest challenges for technology.

    Sign language has many different aspects that are combined to convey the intended meaning. These are:

  • Shape

    The shape of the hands

    Movement

    The movement of the arms and hands

    Location

    The place of the articulation

  • Pose

    The posture of the body

    Face

    Facial expressions

    Rhythm

    The rhythm and speed of signing

About us

SignAll spun off from the research lab of Dolphio Technologies, one of the most successful technology companies in Central and Eastern Europe. Our unique dream team of fifteen experienced researchers gained more than 100 years’ of experience together in the field of computer vision and natural language processing. After closing a seed investment round of EUR 1.5 million from an international consortia SignAll’s enthusiastic team is on it’s way to provide a technology that can improve the life of the deaf community.

    Beaking news

    Budapest based startup SignAll Inc. received one and a half million Euros from an international association of venture capitalists to finalize its software that automates the interpretation between Deaf people using American Sign Language (ASL) and the those who can hear. The startup, spun off by Dolphio Technologies, a Hungarian R&D House and ICT service provider, has held the attention of technology investors since the LT-Innovate Awards in Brussels last year.
