This IBM Redpaper is intended for application developers who want to develop and test voice portlet applications and who have previously developed graphical-user-interface (GUI) portlet applications or VoiceXML applications. It shows how to develop a voice portlet using VoiceXML and the Portlet API. Furthermore, it introduces concepts associated with speech applications and the Portlet API. The Voice Toolkit V5.0 and WebSphere Studio Site Developer V5.1 are used to develop sample scenarios. VoiceXML and the Portlet API are described with the help of example GUI portlets that are transformed into speech-user-interface (SUI) portlets. Knowledge of Java, Servlet, JSP, MVC, and VoiceXML programming is recommended for developing voice portlet applications.
