Abstract

This paper deals with mainly the profoundly deaf people who are beginning to learn the British Sign Language (BSL) as their first language for communication. These beginners could be children, teenagers or even adults who have hearing problems. There are already quite a few BSL learning websites and Lip Reading software available on the market. However, there is no such software that associates the two associated problems although there might be BSL users who can benefit from Lip Reading. This could help them not only for communication but also enable them to interact more with people with a normal hearing range, who as a matter of fact, form a major part of the society we live in. The artifact aims to be run on most computers making it easier for people to access and use it without the need for any additional costly features
