The research work presented in this paper explores the ways in which, people who are unable to speak, can communicate easily with the people around. The research incorporates a system comprising of a glove-based mechanism, constituting sensors and a controlling system to recognize the hand gestures and movements and communicate accordingly. This research work is significant as there are a number of ways to convey the message, which includes, display on LCD, on a Bluetooth device and as well as via a speaker. This hardware is integrated with a program embedded in a microcontroller chip capable of correctly determining the specified alphabets from the hand positions with the use of flex sensors. With the use of minimum tools and maintaining the efficiency certain alphabets and few common words used in conversations have been implemented, further scope for more with complex glove system.
