Third international symposium on live subtitling with speech recognition.
'Exploring new avenues and new contexts: live subtitling and other respeaking
applications for (media) accessibility'
In the footsteps of the symposia held at Forli on 17 November 2006 and Barcelona
on 19 June 2009, the Department of Translators and Interpreters of Artesis
University is organising the third international symposium on the use of speech
technology software for live subtitling and (media) accessibility.
Whereas the first two symposia focused on respeaking for live or real-time
intralingual subtitling only, the present one is broadening its scope to the use
of speech technology and respeaking in other contexts, such as cultural events,
courtrooms, classrooms, distance learning and audiodescription, in addition to
live-subtitling for television, the core focus of the symposium series.
The purpose of this expanded scope is to introduce new, related,
state-of-the-art initiatives in research and practice to each other with a view
to investigating interdisciplinary overlaps and joint research interests.

Deadline abstracts: 30 May 2011

We invite contributions dealing with speech-to-text and text-to-speech software
development, respeaking techniques in different contexts, the analysis and
improvement of the respeaking process and its different stages, the analysis and
improvement of the respeaking product, the exploration of new applications, the
management of delay in broadcasting, the management of the cognitive
respeaking/interpreting load, ... in the context of:
-(applied) research into live subtitling with respeaking technology for
-(applied) research into the use of respeaking technology for media
translation in different live contexts,
-(applied) research into the interdisciplinary features of respeaking (e.g. its
simultaneous interpreting) in all such contexts.
A selection of the papers presented at the symposium will be published Convenor:
