What are Amazon Alexa Skills & voice-enabled app development?
Learn more about voice skills and how voice-enabled applications work with these key concepts:
01 Automatic Speech Recognition Technology
Enables a machine or computer program to receive and interpret dictation or to understand and carry out spoken commands. This tech can analyze the sounds you make when talking by digitizing it to a format it can understand, and then analyzing it for meaning. It’s the first step that allows voice assistants to respond when we say “Ok, Google tell me the weather” or “Alexa, how far away is the moon?”
02 Artificial Intelligence
AI makes it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs and perform human-like tasks that we once believed only humans could do. For Amazon Alexa, this AI is a cloud-based service called Alexa Voice Services.
Alexa Voice Service will process the response and identify the user’s intent, then it makes the web service request to third party server if needed. If the information the user is looking for exists at an external third-party service, the request will collect that information.
03 Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
A technology that enables a computer to interact with humans through either voice or dual-tone multi-frequency signals. With contemporary IVR systems, the input gathered and responses can be in the form of spoken word. When a voice assistant finds an appropriate response to a query, it sends them to the Echo smart speaker and reads it aloud for the user.
