Communication between the deaf and hearing.
Human Sign Language interpreters are not always available

The Signtel Interpreter™ is extremely valuable during emergency situations when a human Sign Language interpreter is
The Signtel Interpreter™ utilizes a combination of off-the-shelf hardware & proprietary
software to capture the hearing party's voice or inputted text and translates it into seamless sign language video and text
for the deaf on a computer screen. The deaf party can type his or her response, and a digitized voice will vocalize that message.
Internet or Word
When reading text or browsing the Internet,
one quickly realizes that our language has many idioms and phrases that are meaningless when translated literally. The Signtel
Interpreter™ translates the meaning behind the idioms and phrases to sign language video and enables speech reading.

seamless sign language video in real time. Similarly, text can be typed onto a keyboard for translation.
