    Developing rich multimodal mobile applications using W3C Standards (tutorial)

    by Nagesh Kharidi and Raj Tumuluri

    Mobile Voice Conference

    San Francisco, USA

    Relevant technology areas: Web Design and Applications, Web of Devices, and Browsers and Other Agents.

    Using Openstream’s Cue-me™ platform and AT&T Speech Mashup, participants will learn how the Multimodal Architecture based on World Wide Web Consortium Standards can be used to develop rich multimodal applications. The session will present the W3C MultiModal Interaction (MMI) architecture and how the architecture integrates various components of a multimodal system (speech recognition, text-to-speech, ink annotation, handwriting, camera, etc.), into a smoothly coordinated application. Participants will use Openstream’s Cue-me™ Studio and learn hands-on how to use various components to incorporate rich interactions into an application in a portable, platform-independent way. The developed application will be deployed and run on devices running iOS, Android, Windows, etc.

    Technologies, Tools, and Standards for Multimodal Application Development

    by Deborah Dahl

    Mobile Voice Conference

    San Francisco, USA

    Relevant technology area: Web Design and Applications.

    Multimodal interfaces combining speech, touch and typing are a natural fit for interaction with small mobile devices. While generic personal assistants like Siri have been around for a couple of years and serve a wide audience, more focused enterprise-specific applications like customer service and shopping are also starting to appear. This raises the question of how enterprise multimodal applications will be developed. What tools, platforms, and standards are available, and what are their advantages and disadvantages? How do standards like HTML5 and the W3C Multimodal Architecture support multimodal applications? This talk will review the available tools, technologies and standards for mobile multimodal applications.
