      We need to talk to the robots when they will be everywhere around us. The best way to communicate is naturally, using speech and gestures. Some do not have ability to speak or hear or the ability to speak and hear fades away as we become older. The robots should learn the natural (to us) way of communicating with the people and sign languages are the natural way for some people. Also, sign languages are fascinating and can do so much more than spoken or written languages
