SOLUTIONS, DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
Mediavoice’s team is strongly oriented towards product innovation and has therefore created many innovative products and services especially in the field of assistive technology together with UICI (Italian Union of the Blind and the Visually Impaired), with whom it has been a technological partner for a decade.
SPEAKY SDK BASED SOLUTIONS
Mediavoice engineers applications based on the Speaky Facile platform using its own Software Development Kit (SDK) called Speaky SDK, which is simple and quick to use by programmers. Speaky SDK allows you to design and integrate both simple and complex voice interfaces to any Desktop, Mobile or Web Based application in Microsoft.NET, Android and iOS environments. Mediavoice uses standard development tools from Microsoft, Apple and Google such as Microsoft Visual Studio, XCode, Eclipse, Android Studio and the most popular programming languages such as C/C ++, C#, Java, Swift and many others.
SPEAKY VOICE PORTAL BASED SOLUTIONS
A Voice Portal can be defined as a traditional web portal navigable by voice through the telephone network, fixed or mobile. The user calls a telephone number made available to the voice portal and browses the content of the web portal through the voice and /or the telephone keys using speech synthesis and voice recognition technologies. A first tangible advantage of these solution is undoubtedly the accessibility and usability through the use of the voice which remains the most “natural” mode of interaction for any person. The most popular standard language for the development of voice portals is VoiceXML derived from the more famous XML standard W3C language.
In addition to developing and putting on the market Voice Portal solutions based on the VXML standards, Mediavoice offers and proposes a NON-INTRUSIVE solution for vocalizing web portals called Speaky Voice Portal, based on the proprietary patent Voice@Web.
Thanks to Speaky Voice Portal double benefit:
- Allows any user to access the original content via vocal interaction;
- Adds a telephonic connection to the content and services therein without the need for reprogramming or modifying content.
In this way, the site becomes telephone accessibile quickly and unobtrusively.
Main Features of Speaky Voice Portal:
- The introduction of a new channel (telephonic) results in the growth of the target market and increases the ability to attract new users including those on the move, the non tech savy, the disabled or those who are simply keyboard adverse.
- It improves the ability to convert users into consumers: the virtual shop assistant guides and helps the user, facilitating the research and acquisition of products and services.
- It improves stickiness of the users/consumers: by introducing entertainment,advertising and other vocal services, loyalty is improuved and , as a result, also traffic.
- It’s Non intrusive: No changes are required to the original web pages as it integrates with all types of code; HTML, ASP, JSP or any proprietary code for dynamic web pages. In this way a complete separation of technologies is possible, preserving the integrity of the original investment in the existing platform.
- There is no increase in Web Server load: No applications are needed to be installed on the web server. Speaky Voice Portal only requires a small set of files to be installed on any type of web server. This means that there is no increase in load due to the vocalization of the portal’s web server.
- It has a dedicated web browsing and telephone line management server: this also removes the need for extra loading of the web servers.
- It has Low bandwidth consumption: data travels as simple ASCII characters in very low volumes compared to an average HTML page. The comparison with WAV files is around 1/500 for equivalent characters carried.
Being Speaker independet, it eliminates the need to learn the user’s vocal style. As well as this ,the user can give vocal commands in the way that feels most natural to them ( “could you tell me?”, “I’d like to know”, “could you tell me?”)
