Overview: Improvements in speech technology and the increased use of PDAs, mobile voice, and multi-modal devices are combining to propel the development and deployment of speech-enabled applications.

Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Text-To-Speech (TTS) are two of the baseline services that make it possible to extend application user interfaces beyond Web browser and touchtone (DTMF) interactions.
