View Full Version : ASL Hand Gesture Recognition using OpenCV

September 3rd, 2012, 11:00 AM
i'd like to make an ASL Hand Gesture Recognition program using OpenCV. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Sign_Language (ASL). here's a list of the different hand gestures: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ABC_pict.png

i have read about cvConvexityDefects() and i think it can handle hands that have at least one finger open.

how do you handle the hand gestures that have finger/s closed like A, E, M, N, S, and T? how about the moving hand gestures like J and Z? :(
