Frequently Asked Questions

What is VoiceXML or VXML?
VXML stands for Voice Extensible Mark-up Language (VoiceXML), a new standard developed to make Internet content and information accessible via voice and a telephone.   

How does InternetSpeech voice-enable business websites, so customers can access Internet information on voice command? Do businesses need to rewrite text with VXML?
InternetSpeech’s netECHO is based on proprietary artificial intelligence that automatically reads any page written in HTML, XML, VXML or WML, and simultaneously converts text to speech. Businesses do not ever need to spend the tedious time it takes to rewrite web pages in VXML. In fact, InternetSpeech’s netECHO technology translates applications 20 times faster and costs five times less than if VXML was used to convert text to speech.  

How long does it take to voice-enable content or applications?
With InternetSpeech, voice-enabling can take one to fourteen days, depending on the level of customization businesses want. Customization is needed for special “dialog design” or “ form processing.” Compared to using VXML, which take 20 times longer or as much as six months, InternetSpeech’s automated process is extremely efficient and cost-effective.  

How does the hosting work?
InternetSpeech offers different hosting options for businesses. InternetSpeech can provide technology that plugs into a business’ existing web site, so it can be managed remotely from another server at third party hosting company, or customers can host at their own facility.

Yes. InternetSpeech’s netECHO can plug into any application, including intranets and extranets.  

How does InternetSpeech compete with voice portals?

In both cases, InternetSpeech automates the voice-enabling process, so that users They can access download any information from the website Internet, including whether it is the current news, weather conditions or latest stock quotes.
