Speech Applications Voice New Strengths
Companies that want to broaden the range of features in telephony-based applications now have more options through speech recognition, but the new technology will require the development of greater levels of expertise. With Version 2.1 of VXML (Voice XML), the World Wide Web Consortium is about to standardize a number of improvements that consolidate several common vendor implementations of features that previously weren't inside the scope of VXML. This will allow developers to build more robust applications and handle exceptions more effectively. Version 2.1 of VXML is currently under final review by the W3C (

Building VoiceXML Dialogs
Until fairly recently, the web has primarily delivered information and services using visual interfaces, on computers equipped with displays, keyboards, and pointing devices. The web revolution had largely bypassed the huge market of customers of information and services represented by the worldwide installed base of telephones for which voice input and audio output provided the primary means of interaction.

Tomorrow's Web Today
Ten to midnight -- it's your partner's birthday tomorrow, and you've forgotten their gift! Suddenly, a thought comes to mind: she's always wanted to see a musical in the big city. "Barry," you say, for that is the name of your web agent, "buy two tickets for Cats in London for tomorrow." A short pause, then Barry responds: "Please confirm; Cats the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, in London the capital of the UK?" "Correct," you reply. "Understood." The next morning a print-out awaits your attention, comprising a receipt for your tickets and a map with directions to the theatre.

Term of the Week: SALT
The SALT (Speech Application Language Tags) specification pairs speech with HTML, XHTML, and XML. The specification boasts a 70-member consortium of backers including industry heavyweights Microsoft, Cisco, and Intel. The group submitted SALT 1.0 to the W3C. SALT is not a W3C standard, though. SALT was submitted to the W3C's Voice Browser working group, which will consider it as a part of the next VoiceXML standard. This article will touch on the SALT/VoiceXML relationship again near the end.

VoiceXML & Instant Messaging
When I'm at the airport and my flight is cancelled, I call my travel agent who gives me travel alternatives. But copying down new itineraries—flight numbers, confirmation numbers, addresses, and telephone numbers—can require several frantic minutes of repetition and scribbling. However, if my travel agent could send me instant messages, the interaction would be quite different. Instant messages would help me decipher complicated lists of choices. When we finished, instant messages would contain my entire itinerary.

Human Factors and Voice Applications
So it's 2001 and most VoiceXML applications do not quite sound like Space Odyssey's Dave and HAL. But there have been giant leaps in speech recognition technology and voice services over the last several years. While the computer has not attained the sophisticated processing power of a human, if you understand the rules of user interface design and you know the limitations of the technology, you can create effective human-machine speech dialogues.
