Abstract or Description

Fast and accurate speech recognition systems bring with them the possibility
of designing flexible voice driven applications. In this paper, we highlight
the needs related to a voice interface and describe the implementation of
a general-purpose spoken language interface, the Camegie Mellon Spoken
Language Shell (CM-SLS). CM-SLS provides voice interface services to
different applications running on the same computer. CM-SLS was used
to build the Office Manager, a collection of applications that includes an
appointment calendar, a personal database, voice mail and a calculator. The
performance of several system components is described.
