SportSign: A Service to Make Sports News Accessible to Deaf Persons in Sign Languages
Sports are important in the life of deaf, as well as hearing persons, on physical, social and mental levels. However, despite that there exist many deaf sports organization in the world, the announcement of sports’ results and actualities is still done by written or vocal languages. In this context, we propose a Web based application to edit and diffuse sports news in sign languages. The system uses the technology of avatar and it is based on WebSign kernel developed by our research Laboratory of Technologies of Information and Communication (UTIC). Information is broadcasted using MMS containing video on sign languages and also published in SportSign’s Web site.
