IBM WebSphere Voice Server for Multiplatforms V5.1.1/V5.1.2 Handbook

An IBM Redbooks publication


IBM's next generation WebSphere Voice Server V5.1.1 and V5.1.2 products leverage the power of IBM WebSphere Application Server. It supports full open standards for grammar, lexicon, and Text to Speech markup development.

It uses the Media Resource Control Protocol (MRCP) V1 Draft 4 for interoperability with a variety of Interactive Voice Response (IVR) companies.

This IBM Redbooks publication will help deploy voice-enabled applications using WebSphere Voice Server and it will give you a broad understanding of the WebSphere Voice Server architecture. It will also help you to plan, install, tailor, and configure your voice development environment on Microsoft Windows XP or 2000 Professional using WebSphere Studio Site Developer V5.1.2, and the Voice Toolkit for WebSphere Studio V5.1.

This book also demonstrates the use of the VoiceXML markup language, Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), Text to Speech (TTS), and the WebSphere Voice Server technologies through examples.

A basic knowledge of VoiceXML development, voice-enabled application development using WebSphere Voice Server, and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) is assumed.
