Normal Human being is able to see and interact with the surroundings. Every individual are not blessed with this criteria. Minority of the people tend to lose their vocal cord in an accident. Such type of patient is known as ‘Aphasia Patient’. The communication mannerism of aphasia patient doesn’t coincide with the normal people. This project is to provide support for aphasia people by recognising their gestures and converting into its corresponding audio language. India is been developing in to the digitalized technology, so the difficulty can be overcome by the newly systems. The learning of the gestures postures differs from each individual, which may also lead to a wrong understanding of the conversation. This difficulty has to be overcome, in order to make the patient to live in a betterment life. The mute language is changed into the speech by the digital signal recognition method. The glove includes 4 flex sensors that gain the pressure produced in the fingers, GSM module to transfer the message for a particular cellular, IR sensor to control the objects in the room, LCD to show off the signs as the text message and a speaker that increases the amplitude of the gesture language. Initially, Flux sensor working is performed and result is identified. The performance of the sensor is up to 85% .The working of flux sensor could be improved.
