1 2014/2/221 MASTAR Project, Universal Communication Research Institute Chiori Hori Ph.D. Spoken Language Communication Laboratory National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) Geneva, 25 November 2011 Telecommunications Relay Services in Speech-to-Speech translation system in accordance with Recommendations F.745 and H.625 ITU-T Workshop onTelecommunications relay services for persons with disabilities (Geneva, 25 November 2011)

2 2014/2/222 MASTAR Project, Universal Communication Research Institute Telecommunications Relay Services in Speech-to-Speech translation in accordance with ITU-T Recommendations F.745 and H.625 Speech-to-Speech Translation Communicating between more languages can be actualized using S2ST technology by connecting distributed S2ST servers, (i.e., ASR, MT, TTS) all over the world. Speech-to-Speech Translation (S2ST) technologies are an effective means to break through language barriers between people who do not speak the same language.

Ex. speech, text, image, video data input by users or output by MCML servers such as ASR, MT, TTS, Sign Recognition systems. Network-based Speech Translation System in accordance with ITU-T Recommendations F.745 and H.625

6 2014/2/226 MASTAR Project, Universal Communication Research Institute U-STAR Consortium The Universal Speech Translation Advanced Research (U-STAR) Consortium has been established as an international research collaboration entity with the goal of developing a world wide network-based speech-to-speech translation system. The consortium objective is to create a basic infrastructure for spoken language communication to overcome the language barriers that exist around the world. Currently, there are participant members from 14 countries (15 institutes). Plan for Field experiment Period: One year from April of 2012 including during the 2012 London Olympics Application: Multiparty conversation via a network-based S2ST system on iPhones and Android phones (Free) MCML servers: ASR,MT, TTS servers will be provided by U-STAR members Potential languages: Chinese, Dzongkha, English, Filipino, Hindi, Indonesian Japanese, Korean, Mongolian, Malay Nepali, Sinhala, Thai, Urdu, Vietnamese and some European languages
