A Sign Language Interpreter in Your Eye

Tyler Foulger and other student researchers from Brigham Young University who were born deaf are part of a project developing a system to project sign language narration using several types of wearable computing glasses – including Google Glass.

The system can project a sign language interpreter on the screen of the glasses. Students who have tried the glasses and watched a movie with an interpreter on the screen of the glasses have been thrilled and intrigued with the experience. Researchers have found while testing during a field trip visits by high school students at jean Messieu School for the Deaf that displaying the interpreter on one lens is the preferred method.
