Build 10 ready-to-use VoiceXML applications!

Following an introduction to VoiceXML and a review of how to set up your work environment, Mark Miller guides you through the steps to building ten complete programs that utilize VoiceXML and related technologies to create fully functional solutions. Each project begins with a clear problem statement, a walk-through of the solution that you'll build, and a list of the tools and VoiceXML elements you'll use to complete the project. Throughout the projects, Miller shares tips and suggestions for working hands-on with the project. Actual telephone numbers are provided that allow you to access real data to test your results.

The ten example projects are:
* Basic VoiceXML application template
* Linking to multiple resources
* Dynamically outputting contact information, transferring calls, and storing voice messages
* User authentication through voice recognition
* Combining projects 1 through 4 to build a more complex system
* Voice-controlled telephone dialer
* Voice report recorder
* Quiz and survey generator
* Voice interface for a calendar of events
* Voice-enabled FAQ engine

The companion Web site includes:
* All source code from the book
* Extensive documentation of the VoiceXML elements and attributes
* A newsgroup for continued discussion of each project

I bought this book last week and implemented most of the hands-on exercises in the book. The exercises are fun to do and the author's explanations are very clear and organized that made learning VoiceXML very interesting.
Now I feel very comfortable to write a VoiceXML script for my upcoming project. No to mention some typos in the scripts that provides you even better opportunity to learn hands-on.

This book offers a great step-by-step approach. The working VoiceXML sites created in the book provide great, practical knowledge that you can put right to work. And the code-check database was very helpful in detecting where a program might have gone wrong. I would recommend this book for anyone getting started with VoiceXML.

I highly recommend this book. Very well written and the projects actually work once you work out your own knowledge of CGI and Perl, but that was not a big deal. I especially like the detailed comment on the code and the in-depth analysis of each of the VoiceXML elements and attributes. I hope Mark Miller plans to write a sequel!

By W. Mattingly on March 4, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was happy at first when reading this book with the anticipation of performing the final project. That project involved Java Script and JSP. Well, I was totally disappointed when I tried download the code I needed to run the project in my NetBeans environment. There was no code to download for the final project and the code in the book is incomplete. This book had some good examples for a junior VXML programmer but it did not offer anything that could not be found on the web like(Voxeo, or TellMe Studio). This book is a waste of your money. I wished I could get a refund.
