The SIGNUM Database contains both isolated and continuous utterances of various signers. Since a vision-based approach was used for sign language recognition, the corpus was recorded on video. For quick random access to individual frames, each video clip is stored as a sequence of images.
The vocabulary comprises 450 basic signs in German Sign Language (DGS) representing different word types. Based on this vocabulary, overall 780 sentences were constructed. Each sentence ranges from two to eleven signs in length. No intentional pauses are placed between signs within a sentence, but the sentences themselves are separated. The entire corpus, i.e. all 450 basic signs and all 780 sentences, was performed once by 25 native signers of different sexes and ages. One of them was chosen to be the so-called reference signer. His performances were recorded three times.
