A group of students at Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges have developed trainable gloves that convert Filipino sign language into speech.

Electrical engineering  students created the gloves for their thesis entitled “Filipino Sign Language to Voice Converter.”  In a Facebook post, student Francis De Guzman posted a video of their work which instantly became viral on social media.

A demonstration of the gloves showed one student doing the introduction of their thesis in sign language. The hand movements were simultaneously being interpreted to voice.

According to the students, the gloves can help the deaf and people with speech impediments to efficiently express themselves by lending them a voice. The gloves contain sensors and a Wi-Fi connector that converts the movement of the hands into speech. AAC
