Abstract: This paper describes a speech and text translator from Spanish into Spanish Sign Language, that tries to solve some of the problems that deaf people find when they access and attend specific training courses. In addition to the translator system, a set of real-time avatar animations representing the signs are used. The creation process of such avatars is also described. The system can be used in courses where deaf and hearing people are sharing the same material and classroom, which contributes to improve the integration of this group of people to specific academic areas. The tool has been tested to obtain direct information with a group of deaf people from the Deaf Association of Seville.
