#Classifying images of Sign Language Gestures using a neural network

Sign Language is a communication language just like any other language which is used among deaf community. The aim of this project is to create a model that can classify images of sign language gestures. For this project I used a Sign Language Gesture Images Dataset from kaggle.

The dataset consists of 37 different hand sign gestures which includes A-Z alphabet gestures, 0-9 number gestures and also a gesture for space which means how the deaf or dumb people represent space between two letter or two words while communicating. The dataset has two parts, that is two folders (1)-Gesture Image Data - which consists of the colored images of the hands for different gestures and (2)-Gesture Image Pre-Processed Data which has the same number of folders and same number of images.
