Virtual Human Signing
at UEA
Signing at UEA covers two research projects funded under the European Fifth Framework which is part of the Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. This site details research undertaken in the School of Computing Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA). The reseach uses avatar technology to communicate in sign language. The ViSiCAST Project (2000-2002) is now complete. The eSign Project (Essential Sign Language Information on Government Networks) seeks to extend that work, enabling deaf people's integration into a key component of tomorrow's information society, eGovernment.
