We Hear You

2020

We Hear You
We Hear you LLC is a startup that has created an application which translates American Sign Language into audible speech through the use of newly developed gesture-recognition technology. Through the use of just a camera on any device, sign language can be translated and output in real-time. 
We Hear You is a streamlined communication tool that simulates conversation and helps bridge the gap to break the communication barrier between those who use ASL and those who do not.
We Hear You was awarded the Winner of the Social Impact Challenge at Bradley University in April of 2020, as well as First place in The Big Idea Competition at Bradley University in November of 2020.

We Hear You ASL Translator
We Hear You is a software that translates American Sign Language into speech and speech back to American Sign language in real-time. 
The software is compatible on any device with a camera.
The goal of this software is not to replace traditional interpreters, but as an option available to places that do not require ADA compliance for translators such as coffee shops, grocery stores, etc.
The software has a 97% accuracy with ASL fingerspelling, and 84% accuracy for the full gestures we currently have in.
