    Abstract :

    Communication is the man’s most effective way to connect with the world around. But for those who lack the ability of speech, communication is visual, not verbal. Technology is being used at its best to make their lives easier and better in every aspect. Now days, Human Computer Interface (HCI) is evolving so as to simplify the interaction between man and machine; Gesture Identification being the latest technology to be explored. Modern gadgets like iPods, smartphones, laptops, and tabs etc. use gesture controlled technology to reduce the complexity of user interface. In this paper, an intelligent gesture recognition system is proposed which is less complex as it uses simple ways to detect hand gestures (without the use of color markers or sensors). This work aims to enhance the communication capabilities of the differently abled (speech impaired) people by analyzing the intricacies of Sign Language and implementing it in software.
