Jestin Joy, Dr. Sreeraj M

COVID-19 pandemic has forced many countries to shutdown educational institutions. Instructions through virtual mode are experimented in many parts of the world as an alternative. This unexpected switch proved to be difficult for both teachers and students. This is more serious for schools catering to the needs of deaf students in the developing world. The lack of availability of Sign Language based lectures and the difficulty in developing contents in sign language has badly affected the teaching learning process of the deaf. This paper proposes a web based easy to use solution for Sign Language based multimedia content creation. Initial feedback suggests that the proposed framework is helpful for the instructors to create accessible multimedia contents.
