This is the home page for the Auslan Tuition System. This system provides an easy-to-use and interactive tutorial for learning the basics in communicating in the Australian Sign Language (Auslan).

The Auslan Tuition System is developed by the automatic sign language translation group at the School of Computer Science & Software Engineering within The University of Western Australia.

The Auslan Tuition System Components:

The Auslan Tuition System is made up of two major components:
  1. The Tutorial Program - which provides the front end displaying of Auslan Signs. The is the main program used for learning Auslan.
  2. The Sign Editor Program - which provides an editor for creating signs. Since any sign can be constructed, it is possible to use this tuition system for other sign languages besides Auslan.


Below are a couple of screenshots of the Auslan Tuition System.
