Envox Worldwide Launches Envox 6.1 VoiceXML Studio
WESTBOROUGH, Mass. - Envox Worldwide released the Envox 6.1 VoiceXML Studio, which enables developers to create DTMF-based or speech-enabled applications that run on any VoiceXML 2.0-compliant gateway. Envox 6.1 VoiceXML Studio is also integrated with the recently released Envox 6.1, Edify's open, standards-based communications development platform.
With Envox 6.1 VoiceXML Studio, developers are freed from writing VoiceXML code. Instead, applications are assembled from pre-built "functional blocks" for voice user interface management, call control, application logic, and database integration accelerating the development process.
The key features included in the Envox 6.1 VoiceXML Studio are SayAs functionality, Application Activity Logging, Block-Level Error Logging, and a Free Form VoiceXML Block.
The new features highlighted above combine with the existing features of the Envox VoiceXML Studio including the following:
- A graphical programming environment that enables developers to assemble applications from pre-built "functional blocks" for voice user interface management, call control, application logic and database integration.
- A library of pre-built user interface components, or "dialog blocks." Included are dialog blocks for collecting credit card numbers, addresses, account numbers, and much more.
- The flexibility to create a range of voice solutions, including interactive voice response (IVR), enhanced self-service, automated directory assistance, alerts and notifications, and carrier solutions, among others.
- VoiceXML 2.0 compatibility. Developers using Envox VoiceXML Studio benefit from the interoperability advantages of VoiceXML.
- Platform support. Solutions created with Envox VoiceXML Studio can be deployed on VoiceXML 2.0-compliant gateways and J2EE-compliant application servers, such as IBM WebSphere and BEA WebLogic.
When Envox 6.1 VoiceXML Studio is combined with the Envox 6.1 Communications Development Platform, the two create an integrated VoiceXML offering. Developers using this combination gain the following capabilities: a set of development functions not included in the VoiceXML 2.0 specification; a bridge between legacy systems and new VoiceXML-based solutions allowing them to leverage prior infrastructure investments; support for speech and telephony resources; a fault tolerant VoiceXML gateway; the ability to deploy solutions in a range of telephony environments; and management capabilities for administering large-scale installations.
