As a user with hearing disabilities and assuming he/she is wearing the hololens. The user can move and place an avatar next to the person they want to communicate with. As the other person starts speaking, the avatar will translate the words into hand signs in real-time. On the other hand, the app has a mode where a user can learn to make hand signs for spoken words.
