Design and Implementation of a Greek Sign Language Synthesis System
WSEAS Transactions on Systems, Issue 10, Volume 3, pp. 3108 - 3113, Dec. 2004.
ABSTRACT
In this paper we present the design and implementation of a dynamic synthesis platform for Greek Sign Language (GSL). The platform utilizes standard virtual character animation and web3d technologies for the synthesis of sign sequences/streams, exploiting digital linguistic resources of both lexicon and grammar of GSL. The input to the platform is written Greek text from early elementary school textbooks, which is transformed into GSL and animated in a standard browser environment. The adopted notation system for the lexical database is HamNoSys (Hamburg Notation System). For the implementation of the virtual signer tool, the definition of the VC follows the h-anim standard and is implemented in a web browser using a standard VRML plug-in.
