Abstract(in English) In case of novices learn sign language in self-study, they use books and videos as learning materials. Although illustration images have the merit of clearly indicating the attention points for the learner, for example, hand movements or speed are difficult to understand for novices. On the other hand, in videos, the movement of sign is easy to understand, but attention points is difficult to understand by novices. In order for novices to learn sign language smoothly, combine the features of both illustration images and videos are ideal, but there are no learning materials that illustration images and videos are same sentences. Therefore, there not learn sign language correctly because not enough information. We consider the generation of sign language video using sign keyframes. Sign keyframes are strongly reflected the spatial characteristics of sign language expressions, and if they are missing cannot be decoded as original sign. In this paper, we propose a sign language learning support system using sign keyframe that can clearly indicate attention points for sign language novices in self-study.
