Spoken Language Access to Multimedia (
A Multimodal Interface to the World-Wide Web
Spoken Language Access to Multimedia (SLAM) is a spoken
language extension to the graphical user interface of the World-Wide
Web browser Mosaic. SLAM uses the complementary modalities of spoken
language and direct manipulation to improve the interface to the vast
variety of information available on the Internet. To make the
advantages of spoken language systems available to a wider audience,
the speech recognition aspects can be performed remotely across a
network. SLAM is believed to be the first spoken-language interface to
the World-Wide Web to be easily implemented across platforms.
