    Technology that translates spoken or written words into British Sign Language (BSL) has been developed by researchers at IBM.

    The system, called SiSi (Say It Sign It) was created by a group of students in the UK.

    SiSi will enable deaf people to have simultaneous sign language interpretations of meetings and presentations.

    It uses speech recognition to animate a digital character or avatar.

    IBM says its technology will allow for interpretation in situations where a human interpreter is not available.

    It could also be used to provide automatic signing for television, radio and telephone calls.
