Capturing spelled voice RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I need to create an application where I prompt the user to spell their firstname and lastname so I can save this information in a database. I was initially going to use the Record Message activity to record this info in a wav file and then have someone listen to the recordings and transcribe the info but figured there must be a way to do this using speech reco.

     

    Any suggestions?

  • I did this a little while ago using a rule for the letters and linking them in a rule for a word. The only problem seemed to be that the recognition wasn't that precise for detecting which letter was being said. Perhaps there are better ways of defining the letter pronunciations.

  • Have you tried a grammar that allows the user to spell out the input?

  • I tried using a grammar but as mentioned in GuyB4742's post the letter reco does'nt work well and makes for a bad user experience. I'd have to prompt the user to select a letter for in cases like m, n.

     

    ie. Did you say m or n?

     

    Kind of reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Kramer was getting calls for the Movie Phone and he couldn't understand the DTMF Tones.

     

    Actually that would make a great add campaign if Speech Server was a stand along product.

     

    Get a real speech platform, anything else is just Kramer!
