Unlocking OWL Ontologies

Ontologies, even when presented in the more user-friendly Manchester OWL 
syntax (the one used in Protégé), can be impenetrable to the uninitiated. To 
address this problem, we have developed a system (named OntoVerbal) that 
automatically translates an OWL ontology into natural language text. We 
would be most grateful if you would help us test the system by participating 
in a short (20 min) experiment that involves reading 10 such texts and 
translating them back into the corresponding OWL.

All participants will be entered into a prize draw for Amazon vouchers:

* 1st Prize: £50 ($80)

* 2nd Prize: £30 ($50)

* 3rd Prize: £20 ($30)

*** Please circulate this request to anyone you think may be interested ***
