A purely vision based, efficient, signer independent, multi-aspect invariant method is proposed for the recognition of 44 signs of PSL. The method has proved its worth by utilizing a very small shape descriptor and giving promising results for a reasonable size of sign dictionary. The proposed methodology achieved an accuracy of 92%.
