IRMA, an agricultural market report interpreter / Jean-Luc Cochard, Pierre Isabelle, Michel Simard. : Co28-1/49-1990E-PDF

"IRMA is a computer system that reproduces the skills of a human interpreter. It can recognize speech dictated into a microphone, translate that text from English into French or vice versa, and, finally, provide an oral version of the translation. That entire process is made possible through the combination of commercial speech recognition and speech synthesis systems, and an experimental system for the computer-assisted translation component — the CRITTER system. The parallels between IRMA and a human interpreter do not extend beyond a certain similarity of functions performed by the two. IRMA's interest lies mainly in its ability to illustrate, through a highly sophisticated interface, the operation of its internal mechanisms. This report gives a detailed description of each of the system components and the principles underlying the design of the user interface"--Abstract.
