A Helping Hand in Saying Hello

Entering Lockdown, everybody had to say goodbye to things, however for some it was saying goodbye to saying hello.  Whilst zoom saw a user increase of 2000%, this excluded people who use sign language.  Framing, quality and issues with lag meant sign language was almost impossible to use over video chat, even for small periods of time.  Teams, Zoom and Skype have teamed up with Ultraleap, who specialise in hand tracking, to create an plugin allowing sign language to be used more clearly over video chat with the use of real time virtual reality.
