In this project a hand gesture recognition system is used to recognize the Indian sign language and convert it into the audio and visual outputs. The Raspberry Pi is used to implement the project using python programming with the Image processing techniques. A camera is connected to the Raspberry Pi for the recognition of Hand gestures. The Hand signs are then converted into the audio by the Raspberry Pi and played through the speaker. A LCD screen is provided for Speech to text conversion which displays the words spoken by the blind communicator to the deaf. The proposed idea can recognise the hand gestures effectively and this may help millions of differently able people to communicate with others. The device also helps to ease the difficulties faced by the differently able tutors to teach classes. This device can also be used for training purposes and to improve the interaction between the tutor and the tutored.
