These gloves convert sign language movements into audio speech

Most people in the world aren’t familiar with sign language, making it awfully difficult for deaf people to get their message across. This is something that a young Kenyan inventor by the name of Roy Allela knows all too well. His 6-year-old niece was born deaf and struggles to communicate with her family, none of whom know sign language. That’s why he invented a pair of smart gloves which converts sign language movements into audio speech. The gloves work by recognizing various letters signed by sign language users and transmitting this data to a smartphone application where it is vocalized. The invention could potentially help over 30 million people suffering from speech impairments to communicate more easily with non-sign language users.
