Abstract

Disclosed is a system for·usability improvement of VoiceXML applications by adding the Web browser GUI as a complementary user interface. Such a visual user interface is convenient for some kinds of voice applications, such as a form application that requires complicated input fields, which are difficult to input via voice dialogues. For such input fields, using the keyboard or mouse selection is preferable to voice recognition. More specifically, the disclosed method enables users to use complementary Web forms for arbitrary input fields in voice applications without modifying the original VoiceXML documents. Fig. 1.
