Abstract


Speech technologies and language technologies have been already in use in IT for a certain time. Because of their great impact and fast growth, it is necessary to introduce these technologies for Croatian language. In this paper we propose a solution for developing a domain oriented spoken dialog system for a Croatian language. We have chosen a weather domain because it has limited vocabulary, it has easily accessible data and it is highly applicable. The Croatian weather dialog system provides information about weather in different regions of Croatia. The modules of the spoken dialog system perform automatic word recognition, semantic analysis, dialog management, response generation and text-to-speech synthesis. This is a first attempt to develop such a system for Croatian language and some new approaches are presented.
