WATCH: Engineering students develop sign language voice converter for thesis


A group of Electrical Engineering students from Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges (CSPC) developed a glove-like device that can translate Filipino Sign Language into English speech in real-time for their thesis project.

“Introducing our thesis entitled ‘Filipino Sign Language to Voice Converter.’ A trainable glove that can interpret Filipino sign language and convert it into speech,” one of the students, Francis Anthony de Guzman, said in his Facebook post.

He explained that a motion-tracking device, MPU-6050, interprets hand motions and finger positions. The data will then be sent via WiFi to the computer for data processing.
