Voice Application Development with Voice XML works from an application-centric approach, detailing how a programmer proficient in standard web application development tools and techniques can build voice-based applications and interfaces. The book presents both the structure and vocabulary of VoiceXML-the primary enabling technology for voice application development-as well as the best practices developed by the authors over years of voice interface design experience at Lucent.

One of the best computer technical books I have ever read. Applications are clearly laid out and the authors never go over the readers head. I urge both first timers and pros to read this book. Future generations may very well consider this book the bible of voice applications in computers.
