The Applied Voice Input/Output Society (AVIOS) has announced their
second student application contest. Applications must involve speech
input and/or output, but may be pure speech or multimodal. Cash and/or
equipment prizes valued at over $1000 will be awarded to teams of
student programmers who design and create applications judged by
industry experts to be the most robust, useful, creative, innovative,
and user friendly. The contest encourages students to develop
applications using speech technologies such as automatic speech
recognition and text to speech synthesis and to combine them with other
modalities. This year students may use any of a variety of platforms,
including Microsoft SAPI 5.3 in Windows Vista, CMU's RavenClaw/Olympus,
Opera's X+V, Speech Application Language Tags (SALT), Voxeo Prophecy, as
well as any of several on-line VoiceXML development environments
(BeVocal Cafe, Loquendo Cafe, TellmeStudio, VoiceGenie Developer
Workshop, and Voxpilot Voxbuilder).

AVIOS president K.W. (Bill) Scholz explains: "Students will build
creative and innovative applications that will lead the speech industry
forward into new areas. The contest also provides a forum for students
to show what they can do with the power of speech applications." Results
from last year’s contest and more information about this year’s contest
