dc.description.abstract Having 5% of the world’s population suffering from speaking disability, building up an effective communication between them and the ordinary community is essential. The people of the community of deaf use sign language as their communication method. In other words sign language is employed by the hearing-impaired to communicate with each other. There arc different sign languages used by different cultures and the communities across the globe. It is very important to have a mechanism for this special group to communicate and blend with the ordinary people specially in working day to day. These special groups of people are contributing much in the development of the economy and other social activities. Therefore, there is a need for a mechanism to bridge the communication gap between this special group and the ordinary community. This research study aims to develop an effective mechanism to acoustically convey sign language to the ordinary community using current technological advancements. The research study has identified the communication issues prevailing betw een the two parties and has developed an effective methodology to convey sign language used by Sri Lankan deaf community. The system has been designed in such a way that the sign or body gesture of the people with speaking disabilities arc captured and converted into voice in English which can be easily understood by ordinary people. This research work also can be extended to many sign languages used by different deaf communities around the world which will contribute to the enhancement of communication in the business en_US
