Development of automatic translation between signed and spoken languages has lagged behind the development of automatic translation between spoken languages, but it is a common misperception that extending machine translation techniques to include signed languages should be a straightforward process.

Use Cases for a Sign Language Concordancer

no code implementations LREC 2020 Marion Kaczmarek, Michael Filhol

As we aim to provide them with such software, we explore the possibilities offered by a first tool: a Sign Language concordancer.


Alignment Data base for a Sign Language Concordancer

This article deals with elaborating a data base of alignments of parallel Franch-LSF segments.


The Synthesis of Complex Shape Deployments in Sign Language

no code implementations LREC 2020 Michael Filhol, John C. McDonald

Proform constructs such as classifier predicates and size and shape specifiers are essential elements of Sign Language communication, but have remained a challenge for synthesis due to their highly variable nature.

Elicitation and Corpus of Spontaneous Sign Language Discourse Representation Diagrams

no code implementations LREC 2020 Michael Filhol

The main contribution of this paper is the specification of the elicitation protocol, explaining the variables that are likely to affect the diagrams collected.


A human-editable Sign Language representation for software editing---and a writing system?

no code implementations5 Nov 2018 Michael Filhol

To equip SL with software properly, we need an input system to represent and manipulate signed contents in the same way that every day software allows to process written text.

Synthesising Sign Language from semantics, approaching "from the target and back"

no code implementations25 Jul 2017 Michael Filhol, Gilles Falquet

We present a Sign Language modelling approach allowing to build grammars and create linguistic input for Sign synthesis through avatars.
