WVS V4.2 product features

  • Support for VoiceXML 2.0, SRGS 1.0, SSML 1.0
  • Barge-in — Allows user to interrupt the dialog and respond to a prompt
  • Grammar-based speech recognition, including support for dynamic grammars

IBM developed engines

  • IBM Speech Recognition engine featuring speaker-independent, telephony voice models TTS engine to synthesize speech from application text
  • Concatenative TTS engine that takes digital text and converts it to digital audio by applying human language-specific rules and algorithms

WVS for Multiplatforms V5.1.1 includes:

  • Speech recognition software that can listen to words spoken over a telephone, recognizes these words, and passes the recognized words as text to an application
  • Text-To-Speech (TTS) software that synthesizes speech from application text for playback over a telephone
  • Connection to many telephony platforms that support the MRCP standard
  • Development tools, including support for applications written in VoiceXML 2.0

WVS V5.1.x is a software product that can be integrated with other software and hardware telephony products to speech-enable these products and their associated applications.

By using an application developed with WVS, you can place a telephone call from either a landline or mobile phone.

  • A separate telephony server answers this telephone call.
  • The telephony server fetches a VoiceXML document from an application server such as WebSphere Application Server.
  • The telephony server then interprets this document and either requests synthesis or recognition to occur on the WVS.
  • With WVS V4.2 for AIX, WebSphere Voice Response acting as the telephony server communicates with the WVS which listens to the speaker and recognizes words.
  • With WVS V5.1.x for MRCP, the third-party IVRs and VoiceXML gateway communicates with the WVS, which listens to the speaker and recognizes words.
  • These recognized words are then passed to the application, running on an application server such as WebSphere Application Server.
  • WVS then uses the text to synthesize speech, which the telephony server routes back to the handset where the caller can hear it.

The following are examples of how WVS V5.1.x can be used:

Voice-enabling server applications

  • Using open voice standards, software server applications, built on open industry standards, can be enabled for voice access
    • This allows you access to voice-enabled Web applications by using a telephone either wired or wirelessly.
  • Voice-enable existing DTMF and pre-recorded audio IVR applications with speech recognition and TTS capabilities

Voice-enabling Web applications

  • A combination of products that includes:
    • IBM speech recognition and TTS engines for accepting voice input and generating synthesized speech output
    • WebSphere Voice Server Application for testing your installation and configuration
    • A Voice Toolkit including Windows™ runtime simulation for Web-based application development

Support software for integration with the following telephony platforms:

  • WVR for AIX, V3.1, or V4.2 (using the included WVS V4.2 product)
  • Third-party IVRs and VoiceXML gateways that are qualified and interoperate with the WVS V5.1.x using MRCP

Speech-enabling IVR application

  • Is a product that includes:
    • IBM speech recognition and TTS engines for recognizing voice input and generating synthesized speech output
    • An application for testing your installation and configuration
    • Support for system management functions
  • Support software for integration with the WVR for AIX V3.1 and V4.2 (WVS V4.2 only)

Compatibility: WVS V5.1.1 is not compatible with previous versions. Previous versions of WVS must be uninstalled prior to installing WVS V5.1.1.

WVS V5.1.1 is a self contained entity inside of a single machine. This product does not coexist with prior versions of the WVS, WVS Speech Technologies, or WVR. This product does not coexist with customer applications on the same machine.

WVS V5.1.1 does include both WebSphere Voice Server V5.1 and the WebSphere Voice Server V4.2 product CDs that supported the AIX environment.

Limitations

When used with WVR for AIX Environment:

  • WVR uses a VoiceXML browser application packaged with WVR. VoiceXML uses applications stored on a Web server instead of applications stored on WVR. Therefore, it does not use DirectTalk® SSI environment for managing applications.
  • WebSphere Voice Server for Voice Response for AIX V3.1/V4.2 needs PTF #1 (which includes PTF U496041 and PTF U497760) to run on AIX V5.2. Previous versions of WVS for WVR for AIX must be uninstalled prior installing WVS V4.2.
