Title Linking Pictographs to Synsets: Sclera2Cornetto
Authors Vincent Vandeghinste and Ineke Schuurman
Abstract Social inclusion of people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities can be promoted by offering them ways to independently use the internet. People with reading or writing disabilities can use pictographs instead of text. We present a resource in which we have linked a set of 5710 pictographs to lexical-semantic concepts in Cornetto, a Wordnet-like database for Dutch. We show that, by using this resource in a text-to-pictograph translation system, we can greatly improve the coverage comparing with a baseline where words are converted into pictographs only if the word equals the filename.
Topics Machine Translation, SpeechToSpeech Translation, Sign Language Recognition/Generation
