VoxML: Internet Access And Response Via Voice

A new communications technology will enable creation of products and services built around access to Internet content via the telephone. Developed by Motorola Internet and Connectivity Services division, Naperville, Ill., VoxML Voice Markup language is a flexible-application programming environment that allows software developers and Internet content providers to write voice applications that access Web content by natural voice dialogue across wireline and wireless phones, and computers using voice commands. A voice-activated flight status service is an example of a VoxML application that provides convenient access to timely information. A user calling in to access airline information says, " is the ABC flight form XYZ on time?" The airline's VoxML application interprets the voice request and translates it to a Web request. The application locates and publishes the requested information in VoxML, which is then translated from text to speech and delivered back to the user.
