Abstract

Motivation § There is a new emphasis on voice as a medium of interaction. Recent examples include – Siri Apple, Nina from Nuance, WeChat voice chatting service, voicetweets, APIs from Twilio etc. § Voice hyperlinked audio content is more powerful as a content delivery mechanism than static audio content – Voice hyperlinks are links to audio content traversable by speech commands § Currently, the ability to create voice hyperlinks to audio content and accessible across multiple channels (mobile application, sms, email, voice apps etc. is missing) Further, manual creation of voice hyperlinks among pieces of audio content is less effective as compared to discovering and creating important links automatically

A System and Method for Automatically Creating voice hyperlinks in Mobile applications and traditional voice Applications

Motivation

There is a new emphasis on voice as a medium of interaction. Recent examples include


- Siri Apple, Nina from Nuance, WeChat voice chatting service, voicetweets, APIs from Twilio etc.

Voice hyperlinked audio content is more powerful as a content delivery mechanism than static audio content

  - Voice hyperlinks are links to audio content traversable by speech commands Currently, the ability to create voice hyperlinks to audio content and accessible across multiple channels (mobile application, sms, email, voice apps etc. is missing)

Further, manual creation of voice hyperlinks among pieces of audio content is less effective as compared to discovering and creating important links automatically

- An automatic technique of identifying interesting concepts and keywords in audio content and linking them to relevant informational pieces is needed


- The mechanism is needed across mobile applications and telephony voice applications (voip, pstn, cellular)

- Manually added hypertext-style links to connect logically related comments.


- We propose a system and method to


- Automatically discover hyperlink targets in available audio content in mobile applications and voice services


- Identify potential source content that could hyperlink to these discovered hyperlink targets


- Create voice hyperlink representation pointing to the discovered targets


- Insert these voice hyperlinks in one or more of identified source content


- Enable access of these hyperlinks through mobile applications, voice application and other media


- Forward Direction


- We have the link source, i.e. content that we need more details or pointers for. For instance, an important document or audio content where a few concepts need more clarification or need to be associated with related content
