Sign Language Translation has recently achieved significant accomplishments, raising hopes for improved communication with the Deaf. The primary language of the Deaf population is now American Sign Language (ASL), which is conveyed via body language and understood through eye contact. The main objective of this study is to construct a deep learning-based automatic translation system that can translate ASL to English text. The WLASL dataset is used for the experiment. For sign-to-text translation, this study uses the CNN, GRU, CNN+LSTM, and planned 3D-CNN+LSTM networks. PCA is often employed as a pre-processing step to facilitate the identification of hands. The accuracy of the findings from the suggested model, which is better than the accuracy of the other models utilized in this study, was 83.33% at the end.
