We are pleased to announce that we started the video recordings for the creation of a parallel corpus for the Greek Sign language and the Greek. We set up our studio, which included one computer vision camera by Ximea and one Kinect device for recording depth, at the premises of the sign language school Κ.Ε.Τ in Athens. Eight experienced signers participated in the recording, and they performed nineteen scripts. At the end of the second day, we had in our hands six hours of video, that will be included in our database.
