Speech and Language Technology for Disabled Persons
The paper describes the methodology and the preliminary results of an evaluation of Ciber232 a Spanish text-to-speech system used by blind persons. The assessment has been carried out by means of personal interviews guided by a questionnaire focussed on two aspects: user's acceptance and overall quality. Preliminary results for professional and for non-professional users show a fair degree of acceptance and adequacy to their needs, although a wide range of requirements is identified even with a small sample of users.
