Paper Abstract

Sign Language is a better language used by the hearing impaired. This report offers a means of visual communication over a very—low bandwidth communication network (i.e. telephone lines) of which the purpose is to supply a visual telecommunication among the deaf community. We develop a system which consists of the edge detection, the binarization, the vectorization, the inter—frame correspondence, the component trajectory finding, and hybrid encoding. This system is able to transmit a sequence of images of the sign language at higher resolution and lower transmission rate.
