Voice interaction applied to user interfaces

Within the VISUAL project, SCT used the java classes of the ConPalabras plug-in (developed outside this project to provide web pages with voice capabilities) upgrading its functionality to add voice output to Visual Basic components in such a way that it is compatible with assistive technologies that already have voice output such as screen readers and magnification software. The code that performs the synthesis of messages is written in Java, so it can be used in any platform. To access the java code from the Visual Basic side, a C+++ library was written. SCT wants to further explore this approach in other research and developments projects.
