HAND gesture recognition provides an intelligent, natural, and convenient way of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Sign Language Recognition (SLR) and gesture-based control are two major applications for hand gesture recognition technologies. SLR aims to interpret sign languages automatically by a computer in order to help the deaf communicate with hearing society conveniently. Since sign language is a kind of highly structured and largely symbolic human gesture set, SLR also serves as a good basic for the development of general gesture-based HCI.
