Vlog Analysis and Suggestion Tool (VAST)

Vlogging (video blogging) has become a popular practise and is a form of communication where video is the main means of communication. The Deaf community have taken advantage of this communication means as it can facilitate signed language communication, without the need for textual interaction. Video quality is reliant on the video quality of Signed language videos.

The VAST system, which stands for vlog analysis and suggestion tool, allows Signed Language users who create vlogs to assess the quality of their video content using three technical factors:

·         Lighting

·         Signing Space

·         Background

The goal of the system is not to automatically improve the quality of the vlog but to allow the user to receive the feedback and make better quality vlogs on their own.
