This research attempted to determine if active haptic learning (AHL) can be used to aide in teaching sign language to people who operate within the deaf community on a day-to-day basis. This project endeavors to answer this question utilizing a wearable tactical interface (a glove) with position sensing and feedback, which will train the brain to relate a discrete movement of the muscles in the hand and wrist to correlate to each sign language letter, establishing a incognizant neural memory and reducing the amount of time normally required to actively memorize the movement.
