                         recognition of gestures on digital images. In this way, two shape 
                         descriptors were used: the histogram of oriented gradients (HOG) 
                         and Zernike invariant moments (ZIM). A feature vector composed by 
                         the information acquired with both descriptors was used to train 
                         and test a two stage Neural Network, which is responsible for 
                         performing the recognition. In order to evaluate the approach in a 
                         practical context, a dataset containing 9600 images representing 
                         40 different gestures (signs) from Brazilian Sign Language 
                         (Libras) was composed. This approach showed high recognition rates 
                         (hit rates), reaching a final average of 96.77%.",
