Currently, remote vision-based control, which is converted into a voice, is a research becoming one of the major focuses among researchers due to various applications in terms of Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI). The proposed idea is to learn a robot how to receive hand directional gestures as left, right, up and down, and pronounce these directions according to the originated directions. To implement this, a technique is proposed by using index-finger of a hand in order to point out random directions, in which the feature extraction is based on the area of the object pixels. It is static hand directional gesture recognition. This method starts by inserting a video to extract frames, which are processed one by one to output 4-possible-direction. After that, each specific direction will switch on its corresponding voice pronouncing the direction sign as a robot speaking. Experiments were conducted on 10-video frames for testing by using 10 individuals. The total frames for this experiment is having 442 frames. Results demonstrate high successful recognition rate in terms the performance accuracy up to 94.57%.
