  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (2017)
    This paper presents a demonstration of a stochastic prosody tool for enrichment of synthesized speech using SSML prosody tags applied over hierarchical thematicity spans in the context of a CTS application. The motivation ...
  • Villarejo Muñoz, Luis; Farrús, Mireia; Ortiz, Sergio; Ramírez, Gemma (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010)
    In this paper, we describe the adaptation process of Apertium, a free/open-source rule-based machine translation platform which is operating in a number of different real-life contexts, to the linguistic needs of the ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (COLING, 2016)
    Speech prosody is known to be central in advanced communication technologies. However, despite the advances of theoretical studies in speech prosody, so far, no large scale prosody annotated resources that would facilitate ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Vié, Arnaud; Villarejo Muñoz, Luis; O’Regan, Jimmy (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, 2011)
    This document describes a project aimed at building a new web interface to the Apertium machine translation platform, including pre-editing and post-editing environments. It contains a description of the accomplished work ...
  • Öktem, Alp; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (Springer, 2017)
    Until very recently, the generation of punctuation marks for automatic speech recognition (ASR) output has been mostly done by looking at the syntactic structure of the recognized utterances. Prosodic cues such as breaks, ...
  • Luque, Jordi; Morros, R.; Garde, I.; Anguita, Jan; Farrús, Mireia; Macho, D.; Marqués, F.; Martínez, C.; Vilaplana, V.; Hernando, Javier (Springer, 2007)
    In this paper, we address the modality integration issue on the example of a smart room environment aiming at enabling person identification by combining speech and 2D face images. First we introduce the monomodal audio ...
  • Costa-jussà, Marta R.; Farrús, Mireia; Mariño Acebal, José B.; Fonollosa, José A Rodriguez (European Language Resources Association (ELRA), 2010)
    Machine translation systems can be classified into rule-based and corpus-based approaches, in terms of their core technology. Since both paradigms have largely been used during the last years, one of the aims in the research ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Costa-jussà, Marta R.; Cobo, Germán; García, David; Villarejo, Luis; Banchs, Rafael E (2010)
    The UOC is an online university where students follow an online continuous assessment system in order to successfully complete their studies. Due to the growing number of students, the task of marking their assessment tests ...
  • Öktem, Alp; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    This paper presents a methodology to extract parallel speech corpora based on any language pair from dubbed movies, together with an application framework in which some corresponding prosodic parameters are extracted. ...
  • Lai, Catherine; Farrús, Mireia; Moore, Johanna D. (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2016)
    As long-form spoken documents become more ubiquitous in everyday life, so does the need for automatic discourse segmentation in spoken language processing tasks. Although previous work has focused on broad topic segmentation, ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Serra, Montse; Basart i Muñoz, Josep M.; Nadeu Camprubí, Climent (CIDUI Congrés Internacional de Docència Universitària i Innovació, 2016)
    En aquesta comunicació presentem una sèrie d'elements de protagonisme de l'alumne, treballats en una aula d'informàtica, amb l'objectiu de fomentar la participació de l'alumne a la classe. Aquests elements, que inclouen ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2016)
    Intonation is traditionally considered to be the most important prosodic feature, whereupon an important research effort has been devoted to automatic segmentation and labeling of speech samples to grasp intonation cues. ...
  • Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Burga Díaz, Alicia; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2018)
    Theoretical studies on the Information Structure–prosody interface argue that the content packaged in terms of theme and rheme correlates with the intonation of the corresponding sentence. However, there are few empirical ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Anguita, Jan; Anguera Miró, Xavier, 1978-; Crego, Josep Maria; de Gispert, A.; Hernando, Javier; Nadeu Camprubí, Climent (2004)
    La visió actual de la societat de la informació gira fonamentalment al voltant de la llengua escrita. No obstant, és evident que la forma més natural i espontània de comunicació entre els éssers humans és la parla, i no ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Anguita, Jan; Hernando, Javier; Cerdà, Ramon (Dirección Xeral de Creación e Difusión Cultural, 2007)
    Los sistemas automáticos de reconocimiento de locutor más utilizados recientemente están basados en características acústicas de bajo nivel, como las magnitudes espectrales, las frecuencias de los formantes, etc. Sin ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Ejarque, Pascual; Temko, Andrey; Hernando, Javier (Springer, 2007)
    It has been shown that prosody helps to improve voice spectrum based speaker recognition systems. Therefore, prosodic features can also be used in multimodal person verification in order to achieve better results. In this ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Wagner, Michael; Anguita, Jan; Hernando, Javier (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2008)
    Voice imitation is one of the potential threats to security systems that use automatic speaker recognition. Since prosodic features have been considered for state-of-the-art recognition systems in recent years, the question ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Costa-jussà, Marta R.; Poch, Marc; Hernández, Adolfo; Mariño Acebal, José B. (European Association for Machine Translation, 2009)
    In this paper, a human evaluation of a Catalan-Spanish Ngram-based statistical machine translation system is used to develop specific techniques based on the use of grammatical categories, lexical categorisation and text ...
  • Farrús, Mireia (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2007)
    Jitter and shimmer are measures of the cycle-to-cycle variations of fundamental frequency and amplitude, respectively, which have been largely used for the description of pathological voice quality. Since they characterise ...
