The Japanese Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) is doing research that the human being drawn by computer graphics uses sign language in a TV program.

The theme of research is "translation to sign language CG for a weather report." The software has been developed now, focusing on the sign language related to a weather report that many contents are patterned comparatively.

With general Windows computers, the text inputted is translated into sign language, which is outputted in CG form.
