Abstract:

Speech can potentially provide a natural, efficient and flexible means of user interaction with computers in a messaging and communication environment. This report presents a spoken language data entry and database query concept demonstrator. Firstly, the report discusses a technique for integrating a commercial large-vocabulary continuous speech recognizer with a Lotus Notes database user interface for data entry into Lotus Notes forms. Secondly, the report describes the integration of a number of software components, which include a commercial natural language processing product, in order to produce a query interface to access a Lotus Notes database. The military operators can query a database in plain English to obtain information and to monitor their internal workflow.
