Module Enables Addition of Voice Controls to Apps

— October 25, 2012

Appcelerator’s Titanium developers can add voice controls to apps through the OneTok module in order to voice-enable consumer and enterprise mobile apps built on Appcelerator Titanium.

The new module gives mobile developers the ability to easily add voice controls to their existing apps, and the flexibility of offering voice controls as an option when creating new apps by creating words and phrases and add a few lines of code.

Spencer Chen, head of business development for Appcelerator says, “Companies that voice-enable their mobile apps see a higher level of utilization and knowledge sharing while consumers gain the enormous benefits of a much more natural integration of their mobile experience.”

The module lets developers add words and relevant phrases to invoke any activity in their apps with a few clicks. Instead of pressing buttons while driving or typing in a destination, smartphone and tablet users can use their voices to activate, control and navigate through apps, enter logins, or initiate web searches.

For example, developers can access or build a vocabulary of most used commands in a financial app to ensure the user receives fast and accurate access to his or her financial information.
