Long first began working on his special gloves for the hearing-impaired about six months ago when he stumbled upon the concept of translation gloves. Through his research, he discovered that many of the translation gloves available in the market had limitations, such as their capability to translate only individual words. Thus, an individual need only wear the gloves and use sign language for full sentences to show up on a smartphone. The product is set to represent Quang Tri Province in two national competitions.
