Abstract

As regards intellectual development, the deaf individual is the most handicapped of the afflicted class. The term "deaf and dumb", so frequently is applied to that class of individuals who neither can hear nor speak is becoming obsolete among the educators of the deaf, as it implies a radical defect in both the auditory and the vocal organism. Persons who are born deaf, or who lose their hearing at a very early age, are unable to speak, although their vocal organs may be unimpaired. They become dumb because, being deprived of hearing; they are unable to imitate the sounds which constitute speech. There are found individuals who can hear, but cannot speak. To such may be applied the term dumb, in as much as they are either destitute of the power of speech or are unwilling to speak and are lacking in intelligence. The people who cannot speak or have lost their ability to speak in some accident, it becomes difficult for normal people to understand their message and convey their message to the deaf and dumb people by using sign language. The proposed system presents an application on mobile device that recognizes the speech of the user through the voice recognition process, the input proceeds to the speech to text convertor and the output of this is send to system. Base on the user query, the system will provide the output in video form.
