The idea of the Voice Services project is to provide telecommunication infrastructure for the extraction of information from Web and subsequently to present it to a user using speech recognition and synthesis.

To achieve this, the variety of advanced technologies, provided by partners or developed internally, is used:

  • Thanks to courtesy of IBM Research, Voice Technologies, the project has been given an IBM WebSphere Voice Server license for voice-driven applications utilizing VoiceXML, MRCP, and CCXML standards.
  • The most significant achievement is the design of voice applications that act as a dynamic interface to a particular Web service, such as live weather conditions around Europe.
  • Our latest contribution is a modular platform for rapid development of complex voice-driven applications based on Service oriented architecture.
  • We have created a Web interface to facilitate both development and deployment of voice-driven applications and thus to make them ready at once.
  • We have created a specialized proxy tool to help voice applications access the Web and hence simplify the process of information extraction.

Future plans will focus on experimental evaluation and field tests to identify possible drawbacks of voice modality and on the proposals of appropriate novel solutions.
