Review: Voxeo Community
Similar to other service providers such as Tellme, BeVocal, the Voxeo Community focus is on providing VoiceXML developers with a hosted telephony environment which integrates a VoiceXML Interpreter, Speech Recognition, Text-to-Speech engine, speech verification, etc. Unlike most other service providers, however, Voxeo hasn't developed its own interpreter. It usesNuance Voice Web Server, which has a built-in VoiceXML 1.0 interpreter. Voxeo Community supports VoiceXML 1.0 and a number of VoiceXML 2.0 features. Currently the only grammar format is Nuance GSL (Grammar Specification Language). Apart from VoiceXML, Voxeo also supports CallXML, Voxeo's own XML-based markup language for creating user interfaces for the phone. Also a key highlight of Voxeo Community is its recently added support for CCXML (Call Control eXtensible Markup Language).
The currently released community site is located here:http://community.voxeo.com, however, a new version of the community is available here:http://techpreview.voxeo.com. The newer version supports a lot of new features such as call reporting, etc., and includes a tool called "Application Insight." The later version (techpreview) has been used as the basis of this review.
First looks - Voxeo Account Manager
"Calling your Application"
After you have linked your remote VoiceXML applications through the account manager, you then map a phone number which can be used to call that number. A US phone number is assigned which can be used to test and execute your VoiceXML Application.
