The project “Deaf Hear…Deaf Speak” won second place. The project is based on the idea of designing a computerized system that converts the human voice to a language of signs understood by the deaf, and also converts the communicating signs of a deaf person to a voice that the other person hears. Designing this project is attributed to the Department of Computer Sciences under the supervision of the instructor Mohammad Sharaf. Also, the project “Basma- The Web as You Like It” won third place. The main idea of this project involves specifying the web content for users around the world in an efficient way.
