2018-05-25: As you know, next Tuesday (May, 29th), we have a seminar on "Human Language Technologies & Accessibility", by Elena Lloret. Here is the abstract: "In this lecture, I will explain how Human Language Technologies (HLT) can support text accessibility in terms of helping or facilitating the understanding of a document's content or textual information. Students will learn different HLT techniques and resources that can be useful for this purpose, as well as projects and national and international initiatives that are working on this topic."
