Spanish Text Simplification in Simplext: Making Texts more Accessible.
Horacio Saggion, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain.
For people with cognitive disabilities access to textual information is often very difficult because texts written for the general public may be too difficult for them to read: just adapting the format of the text is not a solution. Adapting and simplify texts manually would be impractical with human efforts alone. This talk describes work in progress for the Simplext project which aims at developing text simplification technology in Spanish and for people with cognitive disabilities.
