MetadataShow full item record
There is a large amount of information on the World Wide Web that is at the fingertips of anyone with access to the internet. However, so far this information has primarily been used by people who connect to the web via traditional computer. This is about to change. Recent advances in wireless communication, speech recognition, and speech synthesis technologies have made it possible to access this information from any place, and at any time. In this paper, we discuss voice browsers as compared to current web browsers. Some of the primary techniques of universal accessible design are listed with their relation to voice browsers and some ideas are offered to help authors implementing these considerations when designing web pages. The new voice markup language is briefly discussed.
