The integration of deaf-mute people in our everyday life has been always a challenge for our society. The award winning Show Me! (Mutasd!) app opens the door to anybody to easily learn to communicate with deaf-mute people. The application is intuitive and user friendly and the methodology applied for learning the sign language provides an easy and entertaining way for practicing. Our main goal was and is to make this special language more popular, especially for the younger generation, so they become more open and more interested in the deaf-mute culture.
Two virtual hands and an intuitive, user friendly and minimalist interface greet the user. The three-dimensional animated hands do the gestures corresponding to the word which the user types into the search bar. If the app doesn’t recognize the word, the hands do the gesture for each letter of the input, one by one, based on Fingerspelling. Cheerful images appear behind the hands, which help memorizing the gestures and which are appealing to the younger audience.
One of the most important elements of the learning process is practicing. There are two ways in the application to practice one way is focusing on better understanding and the other on controlling knowledge. When practicing the meaning of a sing, earlier learned signs appear on the screen and the user is asked to type the corresponding word. In case of testing knowledge, a word appears on the screen and the user can check whether they use the right sign.
The integration of deaf-mute people in our everyday life has been always a challenge for our society. Approximately 60 000 deaf-mute person and over 300 000 hearing-impaired people live in Hungary alone. We can’t teach them to speak, but we can learn to use sign-language
