This paper presents the SAILSE Project (Sistema Avanzado de Información  en  Lengua De  Signos  Española  –  Spanish Sign Language  Advanced  Information  System).  This project aims to develop an interactive system for facilitating the communication between a hearing and a deaf person. The first step has been the linguistic study, including a sentence collection, its translation into LSE (Lengua de Signos Española - Spanish Sign Language), and sign generation. After this  analysis,  the  paper  describes  the  interactive system  that integrates an avatar  to  represent  the  signs,  a  text to  speech converter  and  several  translation technologies. Finally, this paper presents the set up carried out with deaf people and the main conclusions extracted from it.
