Abstract:

The objective of this deliverable is to present the final version of the Meaning Disambiguator. This framework will help users with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their carers by facilitating reading comprehension and the simplification of texts, respectively. This will be done by means of detection and, when possible, resolution of semantic obstacles, identified in the user requirements (D2.2) as obstacles with high priority (e.g. less common words, ambiguous words, coreference, specialised terms, or idioms). In light of this, this document reports the development, improvements, and evaluation for each of the semantic obstacles addressed in WP4.
