It was implemented in the context of the RESEARCH – CREATE – INNOVATE Action and was co-financed by the European Union and national resources through the EP. Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship & Innovation (EPANEK) (project code: T2EDK-00982).

The object of the project is the development of a standard interactive tour system in a museum for the deaf visitors using mobile devices that will be able to answer visitors’ questions on the parent sign language (SL) in relation to the exhibits, and provide additional content using avatar or video also in semantics utilizing techniques from the field of computer vision, machine learning and graphics. 

Final desired result is the increase of the satisfaction of the deaf visitors and in the long run the better social integration through better dissemination of cultural content, as well as increasing museum attendance by members of that group. SignGuide is expected to help museums and cultural organizations harmonize in the long run their services provided by European legislation obliging them to provide equal access to vulnerable social groups.

BioAssist, through its participation in the SignGuide project, will appropriately develop the application for the project.
