A complete, hands-on guide to building Internet voice applications

VoiceXML is rapidly becoming the de facto language standard for handling the transition from visual Web browsing to synthesized text-to-speech information access. This book provides Web designers, database managers, and systems designers with all the tools and templates they need to accomplish this transition in the least amount of time and at the lowest possible cost. Mark Miller walks readers step-by-step through ten real world applications-from statement of the problem through code examination, error checking, and deployment-to clearly demonstrate how to use currently available tools, techniques, and strategies for building Internet voice applications. Accompanying each applications project is a telephone number that allows readers to listen to, and interact with, an actual working example of the application.

Responding to the ongoing needs of IT professionals for current and reliable information on the latest technologies, Wiley Computer Publishing introduces the Gearhead Press titles. These books, written by accomplished trainers in their respective fields, focus on real-world examples and case studies to give readers the best information on leading topics.
The Gearhead Press titles are characterized by two imprints: In the Trenches and Point to Point-both series include fast-paced books written by fellow IT professionals who have been there and done that.
In the Trenches books introduce technologies, guide readers to proficiency, and serve as practical, hands-on references after the initial tasks are accomplished. The Point to Point titles invite readers to join an IT team at a model company and implement technologies in real-world environments-demonstrating actual problems and solutions.
