Project: American Sign Language (ASL) Translator Tool
Role: Research Assistant, Developer, Usability Research
Type: HCI, Accessibility
Tools: MATLAB, Java, Microsoft Kinect
The ASL Translator is a tool that translates American Sign Language (ASL) to English using the XBOX KINECT. For the project, I spearheaded the initial process of interacting with potential users and immersing myself in their worlds by learning ASL myself and understanding the intricacies of what translating the language to English would entail. I then went on to work as a developer.
