We introduce How2Sign, a multimodal and multiview continuous American Sign Language (ASL) dataset,
consisting of a parallel corpus of more than 80 hours of sign language videos and a set of corresponding
modalities including speech, English transcripts, and depth.
A three-hour subset was further recorded in the Panoptic studio enabling detailed 3D pose estimation.
This dataset is publicly available for research purposes only.
This section is under construction.
We will be releasing the other modalities soon!
The dataset is publicly available for research purposes only.
You can also use our script to automatic create the folder structure and download the necessary modalities

This means that you must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use. You may NOT use the material for commercial purposes.
The How2Sign dataset was collected as a tool for research, however, it is worth noting that the dataset may have unintended biases (including those of a societal, gender or racial nature). For more information about the bias that the dataset might present, please refer to the published paper.
The Green Screen RGB clips were segmented using the original timestamps from the How2 dataset.
Each clip corresponds to one sentence of the English translation. Note that this may not have a perfect alignment between the ASL video and the English translation due to the differences between both languages.
The manual re-alignment of the English translation with the ASL videos will be released soon!
For copyright reasons, we are not allowed to redistribute the How2 data. Please refer to the original repository to request and download the entire How2 dataset if needed.
Note that the How2Sign follows the original [train/validation/test] splits of the How2 dataset.
If you have any problems with the data, please let us know by creating a " New issue" on the Github repo.
