Washington: A team of researchers has developed a translator that is able to convert signs into spoken and written language - and vice versa.

The translator features a computer and a Kinect camera which is capable of recognizing signing gestures, then gives a spoken and written translation of English and Mandarin for the non-deaf, Discovery News reported.

The system can also work conversely.
Researchers have touted the device as a cost-effective, efficient prototype that works in real time.
