Annotation Assistant using Words Recognition for Building Japanese Sign Language Corpus
Natsuki Takayama, Hiroki Takahashi (UEC)
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Since building Japanese sign language corpus requires tedious work; which is collecting large scale of video data and annotating information, assistance is necessary. This paper describes one of the assistant methods for annotation tasks using Japanese sign language word recognition. The proposed words recognition is composed of body parts tracking, feature extraction, and words recognition. The recognition divides a video and annotates word labels automatically. Moreover, we apply the assistant method to a client-server system; which has interfaces for building Japanese sign language corpus. The system enables simultaneous work by many people. We build a video database of Japanese sign language words to evaluate the proposed method. The database includes 92 Japanese sign language words of 1380 videos which are signed by four deaf peoples. The paper reports evaluation results as 54.5% and 30.4% for words recognition accuracy and work reduction ratio of annotation tasks, respectively.
