IBM Develops Virtual Deaf Interpreter

It's a productive twist on the animated characters known as "avatars," that carry out fantasies in virtual computer worlds.

IBM researchers have developed an avatar that can translate spoken words into sign language.

The technology is meant for use in the real world and could be useful when human interpreters for the deaf are unavailable.

The system called "Say It Sign It" is expected to move out of labs and into commercial products soon.
