One of the many areas in which embedded systems show great promise is assistive technologies, which address the special needs of those with impairments. This article presents HandTalk, a "smart glove" that can recognize basic hand gestures and convert them into speech using low-cost, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components. A low-cost, portable gesture-to-speech glove prototype demonstrates that embedded systems don't have to be expensive to be effective.
