What the Heck is a Multi-modal application?

Speech enabled applications have traditionally encompassed a very small set of enterprise applications. With the technology, standards and tool sets available they have been difficult to develop and maintain. However, there has been an increase demand for multi-modal applications within the enterprise. This has increased the role of speech enabled applications as both standalone and integrated parts of the enterprise architecture. This session will introduce the concept of a multi-modal application and cover how this type of application is developed by a developer using Visual Studio.NET 2003 and the Speech Server SDK. Finally, we will cover how this application can be deployed to the enterprise using the Microsoft Speech Server.

This session will introduce you with the basics of building applications with the Microsoft Speech Application SDK.  We'll start with a brief architecture overview and a quick tour of the different components in the SASDK (like speech controls, promptdb, grammar editor, TASsim, etc).  We will then piece together a simple example of a typical speech transaction to show these pieces in action.  We will also show the use of Pronexus' VBSALT (rapid application toolkit) as a value-add to the MSS and SDK.
