The Convergence of Speech and the Web

  • Ken Abbott


VoiceXML is a programming Language for scripting voice interactions between a computer and a person. The basic element of interaction is a spoken dialog in which the computer produces spoken prompts to elicit spoken responses from the user. VoiceXML prompts may be recorded or generated using Text-to-Speech (TTS) synthesis. Spoken user responses are processed using speech recognition and grammars defined in the VoiceXML program. Users may also respond through a keypad (DTMF1), as defined in the program.
