This paper proposes a gaze prediction model for open signed video content. A face detection algorithm is used to locate faces across each frame in both profile and frontal orientations. A grid-based likelihood ratio track before detect routine is used to predict the orientation of the signer's head, which allows the gaze location to be localised to either the signer or the inset. The face detections are then used to narrow down the gaze prediction further. The gaze predictor is able to predict the results of an eye tracking study with up to 95% accuracy, and an average accuracy of over 80%
