medslt group

MedSLT, is a multilingual spoken language translation system tailored for medical domains. The system is designed to help in situations where no common language between the diagnosing doctor and the patient exists.

In the typical case the communication by using the medSLT system is as follows:

  • The doctor selects sub-domain and language pair
  • The doctor asks diagnosis questions
  • The diagnosis questions are translated by the system into the target language
  • The patient answers the questions saying "yes" or "no", by nodding or by pointing the body part (unidirectional version)
  • The patient answers by speaking directly to the system (bidirectional version).

Currently the system supports speech recognition and translation for the headache, chest pain and abdominal pain domains. Supported languages are English, French, Japanese, Spanish, Catalan and Arabic.The system runs on the desktop PC and on the Nokia's Internet Tablets.

The project is financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
