Abstract [en]

The paper describes the Swedish involvement in the EU project DUMAS (Dynamic Universal Mobility for Adaptive Speech Interfaces), a project which aims at developing multilingual speech-based applications, and more specifically, investigating adaptive multilingual interaction techniques to handle both spoken and text input and to provide coordinated linguistic responses to the user. The project has a clear focus on Northern Europe with two of the eight partners coming from Sweden and four from Finland; and the languages we aim at treating are English, Swedish and Finnish. We will construct an agent-based generic framework for multilingual speech applications, supporting adaptivity to both the individual user and the particular domain. Applications based on the general architecture will benefit from the advantages of fault-tolerant semantic analysis, which combined with the dialogue management routines will handle user interaction in a very robust manner. As an initial such application, we are building a mobile phone-based e-mail interface that will deal with multilingual issues in several forms and environments, and whose functionality can be adapted to different users, different situations and tasks. Such a system produces speech output only (in the form of spoken responses and read e-mails) to the user, but gets two types of input: user speech and textual e-mail messages. It must be able to distinguish between languages, both in e-mails and in the user utterances. The contents of a user's inbox must be continuously analysed in order to enable advanced search functions.
