Web conference access through aVox Portal
Idee: Morgan Richomme, FR–Lannion
The idea is to get access to a web conference withoutany possibility of an access to the internet through aspeech recognition software.
The procedure can be realised by upgrading a webconference product of the Siemens AG. The newfunction is a speech recognition module for the VoxPortal (a product of the Siemens AG) which allowsto forward all needed informations to a dedicatedmodule of the web conference through VXML (Voi-ce eXtensible Markup Language) messages. Then,the web server sends a confirmation to perform therequested operation.
After that, the web conference module, which iscontacted by the Vox Portal, asks the the bookingmodule for the reservation of the ressources on theweb server and sets off the phone calls on the requi-red date. The communication between the web con-ference server and the database module is done byRMI (Remote Method Invocation). The databasemodule stores all the information which are requiredby the web conference server like names, addresses,booking dates, the participiants of a booked confe-rence and other parameters. Furthermore, the user isable to change all these informations and the infor-mations of his personal phone book.
