Talking With Signs: A Simple Method To Detect Nouns and Numbers in a Non-Annotated Signs Language Corpus
People with deafness or hearing disabilities who aim to use computer based systems rely on state-of-art video classification and human action recognition techniques that combine traditional movement pattern recognition and deep learning techniques. In this work we present a pipeline for semi-automatic video annotation applied to a non-annotated Peruvian Signs Language (PSL) corpus along with a novel method for a progressive detection of PSL elements (nSDm). We produced a set of video annotations indicating signs appearances for a small set of nouns and numbers along with a labeled PSL dataset (PSL dataset). A model obtained after ensemble a 2D CNN trained with movement patterns extracted from the PSL dataset using Lucas Kanade Opticalflow, and a RNN with LSTM cells trained with raw RGB frames extracted from the PSL dataset reporting state-of-art results over the PSL dataset on signs classification tasks in terms of AUC, Precision and Recall.
