The idea is to get access to a web conference without any possibility of an access to the internet through a speech recognition software. The procedure can be realised by upgrading a web conference product of the Siemens AG. The new function is a speech recognition module for the Vox Portal (a product of the Siemens AG) which allows to forward all needed informations to a dedicated module of the web conference through VXML (Voi- ce eXtensible Markup Language) messages. Then, the web server sends a confirmation to perform the requested operation.

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.
