Abstract

We present a small-scale study that provides detailed timing information for individual sign parameters in natural signing with a time resolution of 1/50 of a second as well as the method and tools used to collect these data. The avatar system was improved to be able to play back signing annotated in a combination of symbolic movement description and precise timing information. We report on microtesting conducted to verify the impact of these changes on subjective quality ratings of Deaf signers.
