On the 18th of May, 2023, the TechWhiz consortium had its second Transnational Project Meeting. The meeting was held in Maribor, Slovenia, at the Faculty of electrical engineering and computer science, University of Maribor. As has become the norm after COVID-19, the meeting was of a hybrid type to facilitate the remote participation of the project contributors that could not attend the meeting in person.
In the meeting, we discussed all of the results that will be produced in the TechWhiz project, individual partner contributions and responsibilities, and the important project management issues that have arisen since the previous meeting. We are happy to report that the project is proceeding well, and the main tools that will be produced in the project, namely the TechWhiz Studio (an application to configure sign language), TechWhiz Gloss Loader (a web-based solution to facilitate interpretation of the spoken language to sign language) and TechWhiz Dictionary (an online dictionary that will define the searched terms in a sign language using the visualisation from the Studio and the definitions from the Gloss Loader), are close to complete. The tools should soon become available to try for yourself. We will make sure to let you know when this happens.
