Sign Language Recognition Using Leap Motion
Several million people around the world use signs as their main mean of communication. The advances in technologies to recognize such signs will make possible the computer supported interpretation of sign languages. There ...
Automatic recognition of the American sign language ﬁngerspelling alphabet to assist people living with speech or hearing impairments
Sign languages are natural languages used mostly by deaf and hard of hearing people. Different development opportunities for people with these disabilities are limited because of communication problems. The advances in ...
Using Non-Traditional Interfaces to Support Physical Therapy for Knee Strengthening
Physical therapy consists mainly in the execution of rehabilitation processes that aim to help overcome injuries, as well as develop, maintain, or restore maximum body movement. Knee rehabilitation is one kind of physical ...

This paper presents a case study where Human-Computer Interaction techniques were applied in the design and evaluation of a health system. The system consisted of a software platform that supports personalized cancer ...
Alternative and augmentative communication for people with disabilities and language problems: an eye gaze tracking approach
Alternative and augmentative communications encapsulates the use of technology to provide communication means for people with some sort of disability. In this paper, we present a prototype that provides both pictographic ...
Improving deaf people accessibility and communication through automatic sign language recognition using novel technologies
Communication is a key for human development. Nevertheless, deaf people have difficulty interacting with hearing and hard of hearing people. On the other hand, new technology allows gesture recognition. This work aims ...
Web accessibility for people with reduced mobility: A case study using eye tracking
Traditional web interfaces often rely on keyboard/mouse input to work. This characteristic forces people with reduced mobility to adapt or do not use the applications at all. This paper proposes a prototype to increase web ...
Visualizing IT budget to improve stakeholder communication in the decision making process
Traditionally in large enterprises, budget cuts are a treat for IT departments. One way to guard IT budget is visualizing the impacts in IT services of such cuts. Data visualization tools are capable of bridging the gap ...
