Article #2

VoiceXML and Voice-over-IP

By Ian Sutherlands and Pete Danielsen

VoiceXML 2.0 is a W3C Recommendation for specifying audio dialogs between machines and people. VoiceXML directs a machine to output pre-recorded audio or synthesized speech, to recognize spoken or DTMF (telephone keypad) input, and to record audio input. VoiceXML can also perform some telephony functions, such as call transfer, through the <transfer> and <disconnect> tags, which provide an abstract interface to the underlying telephony platform.
