To develop a voice interface to an Android smartphone application.
Voice interfaces give users the possibility to interact with a device without using their eyes or hands. This can be particularily useful in situations where interaction with a device would otherwize interfere with other tasks. A typical example is driving, in which the simultaneous use of a screen-based device such a smartphone can constitute a direct danger. This project focuses in the potential benefits of voice enabled smartphone apps in driving and similar scenarios.
The problem consists of developing a spoken dialog interface to an Android application, e.g. GPS-based navigator or Facebook. The user should be able to switch freely between touch-screen and voice interaction. To facilitate the development of this multimodal interface, Talkamatic Dialog Manager (TDM) will be used.
The problem mainly consists of the following tasks:
Experience of Android app development is valuable but not required.
