Professional translators often dictate their translations orally and have them typed afterwards. The TransTalk project aims at automating the second part of this process. Its originality as a dictation system lies in the fact that both the acoustic signal produced by the translator and the source text under translation are made available to the system.(More)
This paper describes a system designed for use by professional translators that enables them to dictate their translation. Because the speech recognizer has access to the source text as well as the spoken translation, a statistical translation model can guide recognition. This can be done in many diierent ways|which is best? We discuss the experiments that(More)

This paper describes the system currently under development at CRIM whose aim is to provide real-time closed captioning of live TV broadcast news in Canadian French. This project is done in collaboration with TVA Network, a national TV broadcaster and the RQST (a Québec association which promotes the use of subtitling). The automated closed-captioning(More)
This paper reports on the development status of a Multimedia Asset Management (MAM) test-bed for content-based indexing and retrieval of audiovisual documents within the MPEG-7 standard. The project, called "MPEG-7 AudioVisual Document Indexing System" (MADIS), specifically targets the indexing and retrieval of video shots and key frames from documentary(More)
we had just found another way to ask the same thing, with, of course, the same results. We did this experiment on ATIS only and did not bother trying it on WSJ. Picking the questions for each node the way we do (by comparing the impurity of a node with that of its children) is a local optimization of the performance of the tree. It seems plausible that if(More)
