Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


We present an overview of the SiGML notation, an XML application developed to support the definition of Sign Language sequences for performance by a computer-generated virtual human, or avatar. We also describe SiGMLSigning, a software framework which uses synthetic animation techniques to provide real-time animation of sign language sequences expressed in SiGML.
