Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DEVELOPING INTERACTIVE SPEECH APPLICATIONS
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE DEVELOPPEMENT D'APPLICATIONS VOCALES INTERACTIVES
Abstract:
(EN) The disclosed system and method for developing interactive speech applications stores a plurality of dialogue modules in a speech processing system, wherein each dialogue module includes computer readable instructions for accomplishing a predefined interactive dialogue task in an interactive speech application. In response to user input (Figure 7, S1), a subset of the plurality of dialogue modules (Figure 7, 710, 720, 730) are selected to accomplish their respective interactive dialogue tasks and are interconnected in an order defining the call flow of the application (Figure 1, 110-180). A graphical user interface is disclosed, representing the stored plurality of dialogue modules as icons in a graphical display (Figure 7) in which icons are selected in the graphical display in response to user input, the icons for the subset of dialogue modules are graphically interconnected and the interactive speech application is generated based upon the graphical representation.
(FR) Le système et le procédé de la présente invention permettent de stocker plusieurs modules de dialogue dans un système de traitement de la parole, chacun de ces modules de dialogue comprenant des instructions lisibles en machine, afin d'accomplir une tâche de dialogue interactive prédéfinie dans une application vocale interactive. En réponse à une entrée utilisateur (figure 7, S1), un sous-ensemble desdits modules de dialogue (figure 7, 710, 720, 730) est choisi pour accomplir sa tâche de dialogue interactive respective dans ladite application vocale interactive, les modules de ce sous-ensemble étant en outre interconnectés selon un ordre définissant le flux des appels de ladite application, (figure 1, 110-180). L'invention concerne également une interface utilisateur graphique représentant les modules de dialogues stockés en tant qu'icônes dans un affichage graphique (figure 7), en réponse à l'entrée utilisateur, les icônes du sous-ensemble des modules de dialogue étant graphiquement interconnectées, dans une représentation graphique du sens de la communication de ladite application vocale interactive. Cette application vocale interactive est en outre générée sur la base de cette représentation graphique.
