Product description Brand name and product description

Sign- IO aims to address the language barrier between sign language users and non-sign language users. The person using sign language wears a language to speech translation glove and as they make the various sign language gestures, the audio is vocalized on their mobile devices. This enables deaf people to communicate more effectively with their families, friends and the general public without requiring the presence of a translator. The product can also be used to train and teach sign language.
