Description
[Video description: In this video, University of Washington sophomores Thomas Pryor and Navid Azodi demonstrate the "SignAloud" glove, which is meant to convert American Sign Language into written and spoken English text. Their invention won a 2016 Lemelson-MIT Student Prize].

The "SignAloud" glove has been critiqued by the Deaf community who assert that no Deaf people were consulted during the development process and that the glove does not translate American Sign Language, but rather only converts basic American Manual Alphabet hand gestures and finger spelling.
