    • I don't think the deaf community will even bother with this. Look at hearing aids, they are expensive. Some deaf people (like my dad) go on without them because they're too costly. Why buy expensive gloves when a pen and paper does the job fine for 1000th of the cost

    • Many many MANY wrong signs. Wrong translations and on top of that! He gave himself a sign name which is VERY VERY wrong. In the deaf community if you are hearing you HAVE to have a deaf or hard of hearing person give you a name sign. The sign my is a flat hand placed on your chest, pointing is “I”

    • That's great but they can only go so far in that because ASL doesn't translate word for word in english, it's concept based. And some signs are the same but mean different things based on context and the gloves wouldn't be able to know that. Plus you have to add in the grammar of facial (1/2)

    • Ok but a large part of sign language is facial expressions and body language. Also the grammar of ASL is very different than any other language out there and there isn't a translator because it is so complex.
