Sign Language Recognition is a breakthrough for helping deaf-mute people and has been researched for many years. It is still a challenge for deaf and dumb people to normally have a conversation since most people aren’t acquainted with sign language. But owing to recent technology, we are better able to understand people using sign language. This dataset contains images of the most common phrases in Indian Sign Language. The images of ISL are captured using a standard webcam of a laptop with a resolution of 1280*720. These include 30 images of 40 different signs from ISL. Images are not filtered or resized, are captured under varying light intensities and different backgrounds, and stored in NumPy arrays. These images are of static sign language phrases and do not include any dynamic sign.
