It is difficult for most of us to imagine, but many who are deaf ely in sign language as their primary means of communication. They, in essence, hear and talk through their hands. This paper proposes a system which is able to resognize the signs using a video camera system.The resognized signs are reconsructed by the 3D visualisation system as well. To accomplish this task a standard pesonal computer, a video camera and a special software system was used. At the moment the software is able to recognize several letters from the sign language alphabet with the help of colour marks. The sign language recognition is a function of an Intelligent Space, which has ubiquitous sensory intelligence including various sensors, such as camera, microphones, haptic devices (for physical contact) and actuators with ubiquitous computing background.
