Can you hear me now? Move over Siri, here comes an army of speech-enabled mobile applications on Windows Phone. Mobile applications are not always easy to work with due to the small screen and small on-screen keyboard. Using our voice is a natural form of communication amongst humans, and ever since 2001: A Space Odyssey, we’ve been dreaming of computers who can converse with us like HAL9000. Or maybe you’re part of the new generation of geeks dreaming of Cortana? Thanks to the new Microsoft SDKs for voice recognition and speech synthesis (aka text-to-speech), we are now several steps closer to this reality. This session explores the development techniques you can use to add voice recognition to your Windows Phone applications, including in-app commands, standard & custom grammars, and voice commands usable outside your app. We’ll also see how your apps can respond to the user via speech synthesis, opening-up a new world of hands-free scenarios. This reality is here, you’ll see actual live demos with speech and you can now learn how to do it.
