A new research prototype from Microsoft Research Asia, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Beijing Union University uses Kinect technology to translate sign language into spoken language—and spoken language into sign language—in real time. It translates from one sign language to another (such as between American sign language and Chinese sign language), and helps people who can hear communicate with people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
