In this paper, the sub-units in each stream are used and embedded in the multi-stream model. In this framework, sign language recognition system was implemented and evaluated. Experiments were carried out for 5177 Chinese signs. The real time isolated recognition rate is 95.1%. For continuous sign recognition, the word correct rate is 91.8%. This has shown that parallel multi-stream model is powerful for sign language recognition considering the problem of scalability.
