*Deadline extension - Special Issue of ACM Transactions on Accessible 
Computing (TACCESS) on Speech and Language Interaction for Daily 
Assistive Technology (SLPAT)*

/Guest Editors: François Portet, Frank Rudzicz, Jan Alexandersson, Heidi 

Please note that to accommodate other recent calls for papers, we are 
extending the deadline for full paper submission to the ACM Transactions 
on Accessible Computing (TACCESS) Special Issue on Speech and Language 
Interaction for Daily Assistive Technology. We are also adjusting the 
response to authors deadline. The new dates are as follows:

  * Full paper submission: *28th April 2014***
  * Response to authors: 14th July 2014
  * Revised submission deadline: 31st August 2014
  * Notification of acceptance: 31st October 2014
  * Final manuscripts due: 30th November 2014

*Submission process*

oContributions must not have been previously published or be under 
consideration for publication elsewhere, although substantial extensions 
of conference or workshop papers will be considered. as long as they 
adhere to ACM's minimum standards regarding prior publication 
(http://www.acm.org/pubs/sim_submissions.html). Studies involving 
experimentations with real target users will be appreciated. All 
submissions have to be prepared according to the Guide for Authors as 
published in the Journal website at http://www.rit.edu/gccis/taccess/.

oSubmissions should follow the journal's suggested writing format 
(http://www.gccis.rit.edu/taccess/authors.html) and should be submitted

publication will be based on this review.

*Topics of interest for submission to this special issue include (but 
are not limited to):*

.Speech, natural language and multimodal interfaces designed for people 
with physical or cognitive impairments

.Applications of speech and NLP technology (automatic speech 
recognition, synthesis, dialogue, natural language generation) for AT 

.Novel modeling and machine learning approaches for AT applications

.Long-term adaptation of speech/NLP based AT system to user's change

.User studies, overview of speech/NLP technology for AT: understanding 
the user's needs and future speech and language based technologies.

.Understanding, modeling and recognition of aged or disordered speech

.Speech analysis and diagnosis: automatic recognition and detection of 
speech pathologies and speech capability loss

.Speech-based distress recognition

.Automated processing of symbol languages, sign language and nonverbal 
communication including translation systems.

.Text and audio processing for improved comprehension and 
intelligibility, e.g., sentence simplification or text-to-speech

.Evaluation methodology of systems and components in the lab and in the 

.Resources; corpora and annotation schemes
