Abstract—Computers are widely used in all fields. However, the interaction between human and machine is done mainly through the traditional input devices like mouse, keyboard etc. To satisfy the requirements of users, computers need other ways to interact more conveniently, such as using speech or body language (e.g. gestures, posture). In this paper, we propose a new method supporting hand gesture recognition in the static form, using artificial neural network. The proposed solution has been tested with high accuracy (98%) and is promising. 
