The next steps

When a non-deaf person wears the headset, an avatar will appear on screen translating the person’s sign language into speech, but it can also be used by deaf people to translate voice into Irish sign language.
So far, tests conducted with deaf people have shown promising results, with Philip Power, a deaf law student at UCD, saying: “My reaction when I first used the prototype was ‘Wow! This could transform my life and those of deaf people.’”
