Book Description
VoiceXML brings the power of Voice to the Web - the information we are used to accessing through the visual web interfaces of our PCs and mobile devices can now be accessed through speech alone. Building on the functionality already seen in IVR applications deployed by our banks and utility companies, the tag based syntax of VoiceXML will instantly be familiar to existing web developers, and applications can already be deployed using one of the many voice portals available.

With the world's billion plus telephones, from antique black candlestick phones to the latest mobiles, there is a huge ready-made audience crying out for voice applications. The userbase encompases those on the move who require easy access to information wherever they are, and those who haven't the money or inclination to access the Internet through a PC.

The book aims to give the reader an in-depth analysis of the current state of VoiceXML technology. The information will help you develop voice-enabled applications now, and make sure you are ready for future advances of this quickly changing arena.

This book covers: An overview of the development and deployment environments available VoiceXML 1.0 syntax tutorial Grammar use, including JSGF and Nuance GSL syntax Use of VoiceXML with XSLT, ASP, JSP, and PHP Nuance Speechobjects The future of VoiceXML technologies, including VoiceXML 2.0

From the Publisher
This book is for those professional developers who wish to add a new language to their toolkit, and want to be in a position to take advantage of the imminent explosion in voice-enabled applications. We assume a prior knowledge of XML, and some other web programming technologies, such as ASP, JSP and PHP.

The best of the current crop of VXML books., October 31, 2001
Reviewer:"sassyroz" (San Ramon, CA United States) - See all my reviews
This is more than just another VoiceXML book. It goes into all the elements and architecture needed to get started developing phone web applications. I've bought 3 books so far and sent two of them to partners working with me on getting a phone web server online. Covers Voice XML Gateways, two different grammar formats, AVR Software, TTS, dialog design, even a chapter on XSLT, plus tons of VXML code examples. Highly recommended!
