The Sign Language Dataset Compendium



The Dicta-Sign-GSL-v2 is a remake of the Greek Sign Language sub-corpus of the Dicta-Sign Corpus. It contains 5.5 hours of video material from 16 signers covering the topic of travel. The data was annotated in more detail, e.g. grammatical category on sentence and clause level. The Dicta-Sign-GSL-v2 was constructed at the Athena Research Center at the Institute for Language and Speech Processing (ILSP) from 2014–2016 and led by Eleni Efthimiou.

Recordings took place in a studio with two signers in each session sitting in front of a uni-coloured background. Six cameras were used for filming, two of them HD cameras and additional Kinect depth capturing cameras. The signers were filmed from three different angles: front, side and top view.
