PRINT-BASED INTERACTION INTERFACES FOR MULTILINGUAL MULTIMEDIA AND SIGN LANGUAGE ELECTRONIC RESOURCE INTEGRATION

Abstract

In this work we outline previous implementations of multilingual multimedia dictionaries and discuss possibilities for adding new functionalities and expanding their coverage. Independently developed sign language dictionary resources are further explored and considered for inclusion in an integrated multilingual multimedia dictionary with video support. Print based interfaces for direct access to digital content are implemented and a novel concept for dynamic linking to printed documents based on mapping of printed and digital content is proposed. Printed texts in different languages and language independent images are used as interface components for addressing diverse multimedia content including sign language and lip reading multimedia resources.
