Abstract : The software project had two objectives, the first objective and subject of Part I was to develop a Turbo Pascal procedure to drive the IBM Voice Communications Application Program Interface software which interfaces the IBM Voice Communications Adapter hardware to synthesize speech from text. The resulting Turbo Pascal procedure, SPEAK.INC, was designed to allow any user the ability to produce speech-from-text from within any Turbo Pascal program. In addition, three application programs that can be applied for introductions, explanations, error messages, etc. were developed using the procedure. The second objective, covered in Part II, explores voice recognition tools through the IBM Voice-Activated Keyboard Utility. This utility allows user-defined applications to be built that free the user from the keyboard during interaction with group members in discussions, presentations, etc. or in any situation where the user requires mobility from the keyboard. In Chapter Five, a user guide with an example user application is provided to assist setting up applications incorporating the utility to use voice recognition.
