Schee reported the eSIGN project from Institute of German Sign Language and Communication of The Deaf, University of Hamburg. After reading this presentation file of eSIGN, I have some thought......
Therefore they want to build a Virtual Signing client which can transform plain text into signing video. Then they can easily distribute informations to Deaf people without additional education/bandwidth cost.
According to different culture background, we can't just apply this tactic in Taiwan.
In Taiwan, there are Natural Sign Language, Grammatical Sign Language and Social Sign Language. All these sign language are not the same. Otherwise, there is no scholar study in Natural Sign Language. Grammatical Sign Language established by Ministry of Education is more similar with written Chinese, so it will cost the same to educate as written Chinese. There is also another problem that computer usage in Taiwan is not so popular.
So it is more important to offer more clear content, in my humble opinion.由 +) 於 April 22, 2003 11:42 PM 所發表 (
