In order to efficiently communicate with non-hearing-impaired (NHI) in particular locations in real-time, deaf people need a more intelligent and easy to use tool beyond their sign language. In this paper, we propose a new communication tool, combining British sign language with gesture-based mobile communication technology. It can quickly translate sign language into text, with one mobile phone, through organized vocabularies in context of different particular locations and integrated touch screen with gesture recognition technology. It can also simplify the process of deaf-to-NHI communication, shows meanings quickly and clearly and gets responses immediately. It bridges the gap in communication between deaf and the NHI. In order to reach this goal, we have designed a set of mobile motion gesture for testing our ideas and further development.
