<h1>Voice Tools Project</h1>
<p>The Voice Tools Project is a proposed open source project under the
Eclipse Technology Project.</p>
<p>This proposal is in the Project Proposal Phase (as defined in the <a href="/projects/dev_process/">Eclipse
Development Process</a> document) and is written to declare its intent
and scope. This proposal is written to solicit additional participation
and input from the Eclipse community. You are invited to comment on and/or
join the project. Please send all feedback to the <a
<p>The Eclipse open source project has been been exceptionally
successful and established Eclipse as a de facto standard IDE platform
and world class IDE. To date, focus has been on tools for Java
application development. With recent proposals, Eclipse is growing into
the Web application, J2EE, and embedded application spaces.</p>
<p>This project proposal serves to take Eclipse into the voice
application space. These tools can be used to develop interactive voice
response (IVR) systems based on VoiceXML standards, such as
speech-driven applications for performing bank transfers, retrieving
e-mail, or querying flight information over the phone<br>
<p>The Voice Tools Technology Project will focus on Voice Application tools in
the JSP/J2EE space, based on W3C standards, so that these standards become
dominant in voice application development.&nbsp; It will depend on and
extend the XML and Web development capabilities of the Eclipse Web Tools
Platform Project (<a
href="/webtools/" target="_top">/webtools/index.html</a>.)&nbsp;&nbsp;
Voice Tools will be a set of Eclipse plugins that will provide development
tools for W3C Standards/Recommendations for Voice application markup.</p>
<p>Initially, Voice Tools will consist of editors for VoiceXML, the XML
Form of SRGS (Speech Recognition Grammar Specification), and CCXML
(Call Control eXtensible Markup Language).&nbsp; Implementations of
other tools that implement W3C voice standards, such as the LexiconML
(Pronunciation Markup Language), will be added as the standards
solidify and the Voice Tools Eclipse community grows.</p>
<p>The Voice Tools editors will be extensions of the SSE(Structured Source Editor)
from the Web Tools Platform Project, and will have the capability of syntactical
validation and content-assistance of the markup tags for each of the W3C
standards.&nbsp; The DTD (Document Type Description) for the standard
markup will be used to perform these functions, and the user will have
the ability to choose the DTD from a preference page associated to each
of the markup editors.&nbsp; In addition, a new file wizard will be provided
for each markup type, to create an "empty" file based on the required
markup defined by the chosen DTD.</p>
<p>We propose this project should be undertaken as a Technology project
rather than part of the Eclipse Platform or Web Tools Platform projects.
Being a Technology project gives it room to experiment without disruption
to other Eclipse Platform or Web Tools Platform development work.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Because Technology projects are not meant to be ongoing, we see this
project eventually becoming a project under the Web Tools Platform Project.&nbsp;
This would happen once this work matures and the Web Tools Platform Project
gets up and running.</p>
<p><b>Initial Committers</b><br>
The following companies will contribute committers to get the project
<li>IBM&nbsp; <a href="" target="_blank"></a></li>
<li>SBC Communications&nbsp; <a href="" target="_blank"></a></li>
<li>VoiceGenie&nbsp; <a href="" target="_blank"></a></li>
<p>Critical to the success of this project is participation of developers
in the voice application development community. We hope this proposal
phase will result in additional interest and participation from the community.</p>
