Voxpilot Announces Support of VoiceXML 2.0 Candidate Recommendation
DUBLIN, IRELAND - Voxpilot announced the latest release of its platform, including full support for the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) VoiceXML 2.0 Candidate Recommendation, published on January 28, 2003. Voxpilot, an active member of the W3C Voice Browser Working Group, thus demonstrates its deep commitment to the mission and the goals of the World Wide Web Consortium, an organisation created in 1994 to lead the World Wide Web to its full potential by developing common protocols that promote its evolution and ensure its interoperability. VoiceXML is a programming language for creating advanced voice-user interfaces, particularly for the telephone. Its major goal is to bring the advantages of web-based development and content delivery to interactive voice response applications. The W3C Candidate Recommendation of VoiceXML 2.0 is a significant milestone in the history of VoiceXML as an open standard for the rapid and cost-efficient development of voice-enabled services, accelerating the widespread adoption of speech technologies world-wide. Dave Burke, Chief Technical Architect at Voxpilot, explains: "The VoiceXML language and paradigm revolutionise development and deployment of traditional and next-generation IVR applications. The W3C members have worked hard to evolve the specification into a complete and solid open standard. Voxpilot was one of the early adopters of VoiceXML, and has leveraged the many benefits that W3C standardisation has enabled, leading to the wide range of VoiceXML tools and applications currently supported on its platform." In addition to implementing the VoiceXML 2.0 Candidate Recommendation, Voxpilot's new voxBuilder release includes support for the SSML 1.0 Last Call Working Draft, Voice Enrollment capabilities, and new grammar tools.
