Wednesday, May 6, 2009. Today the Applied Voice Input/Output Society
(AVIOS) announced their fourth annual student speech application contest
sponsored by AT&T, Cepstral, I6Net, Loquendo, Microsoft, and Voxeo.
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 to be 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 AT&T Speech Mashups,
Cepstral VoiceForge TTS service, CMU's RavenClaw/Olympus, Google
Android, I6net VXI*, Loquendo VoxNauta Platform, Lumenvox Speech
Engine Standard License, Opera, Voxeo Prophecy, and Voxeo Tropo.

Students anywhere in the world can submit their creative and innovative
applications to be judged by speech application experts. The contest
also provides a forum for students to show what they can do with the
power of speech applications  For more information and the contest entry
form, go to http://www.avios.org.
