Communication with other people and their environment, is an essential skill for people with special needs. In this study we present a communicator which interprets a series of commands by means of corporal expressions. These body expressions are learned by a gesture recognition system according to the requirements and disability of the user. Each of the commands adapt themselves to daily tasks. The system learn gestures and associates them with concrete actions that the user wants to do or needs at that moment.
