PublicVoiceXML (http://www.publicVoiceXML.org) is both, the name of a VoiceXML 2.0 compliant browser and the name of a trial project with European community radio stations, who are evaluating VoiceXML technology for their day-to-day business. Some of them, such as Vienna's community radio station Orange 94.0, have contributed to the user requirements phase and have been successfully integrating VoiceXML into their content management and remote journalists management system. The trial activity, which started on March 1st 2002 and which will be lasting until August 2003, is partially supported by the Information Society Technology Program of the European Commission as one out of seven Open Source lead projects.
