UK computer scientists build sign language avatar
Now for something completely different (and useful!).... I just went to check this out and it's very cool stuff.
Lucy Sherriff writes over on The Regsiter that:
Computer scientists at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have joined forces with animation specialists at Televirtual, and the Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID) to create a signing avatar capable of translating written web pages into British sign language.
