Learning a sign language can be a long process, but necessary to improve the communication of people, nowadays you need face-to-face courses. To facilitate the learning of Ecuadorian Sign Language and make it more interactive, a software trainer is proposed using the Leap Motion® device. The system is based on an SVM classifier, the parameters were calculated to obtain greater efficiency in the classifier. It is able to predict signs from A to Z including mobile signs, the Ecuadorian typographic alphabet has 30 letters and 5 require movement. The system was trained with a database of 40 people resulting in 1200 signs.
