A Multimodal French Corpus of Aligned Speech, Text, and Pictogram Sequences for Speech-to-Pictogram Machine Translation

Abstract

The automatic translation of spoken language into pictogram units can facilitate communication involving individuals with language impairments. However, there is no established translation formalism or publicly available datasets for training end-to-end speech translation systems. This paper introduces the first aligned speech, text, and pictogram translation dataset ever created in any language. We provide a French dataset that contains 230 hours of speech resources. We create a rule-based pictogram grammar with a restricted vocabulary and include a discussion of the strategic decisions involved. It takes advantage of an in-depth linguistic study of resources taken from the ARASAAC website. We validate these rules through multiple post-editing phases by expert annotators. The constructed dataset is then used to experiment with a Speech-to-Pictogram cascade model, which employs state-of-the-art Automatic Speech Recognition models. The dataset is freely available under a non-commercial licence. This marks a starting point to conduct research into the automatic translation of speech into pictogram units.
