For the realization of this project we have the collaboration of the Association of Deaf People of Vigo (ASORVIGO) and the Federation of Associations of Deaf People of Galicia (FAXPG). Most of the signing people are deaf, some of them are interpreters of SL and some are SL students.
The corpus is growing as more recordings are obtained from volunteers and will continue to grow as long as research groups continue to have funding for this line of research.
The status of the corpus as of May 2020 is reflected in the article below:
LSE_UVIGO: A Multi-source Database for Spanish Sign Language Recognition
Proceedings of the 9th Workshop on the Representation and Processing of Sign Languages: Sign Language Resources in the Service of the Language Community, Technological Challenges and Application Perspectives, 2020 | PDF
This dataset was partially used to build n automatic sign recognizer of 40 isolated signs for the CVPR workshop: 2021 ChaLearn Looking at People Sign Language Recognition in the Wild. In the paper we trained models with larger datasets from other languages and used their parameters to fine-tune another model for the LSE_Lex40: “Isolated Sign Language Recognition with Multi-Scale Spatial-Temporal Graph Convolutional Networks“.
