Abstract

Based on real spontaneous productions by signers, AZVD is a graphical Sign Language representation system designed to maximise its potential for adoption by the signing community. Additionally, it is kept entirely synthesisable by construction, i.e.\ any AZVD content determines a signed output, which can be rendered through an avatar for example. This paper reports on the implementation of a software prototype developed to support AZVD editing, and the current extent of AZVD graphics integration. The point is to allow users to experience and discuss the AZVD approach, and ultimately assess it as a standardised grphical form for Sign Language representation.
