This paper presents an automatic voice dialing system developed on a speech I/O platform for personal computers. The voice dialing system recognizes a name spoken by the user, and dials the number registered in the system's database for the name uttered. Then, the line gets connected and the user can start talking with the party on the other end of the line. The system has been developed using a low-cost speech I/O platform software for personal computers with speaker-independent speech recognition capability. It has desirable capabilities to be used with application programs, such as dynamic modification of the speech recognition vocabulary from an application program. The voice dialing system has a user friendly interface, to prevent unexpected operation caused by misrecognition and to allow coexistence with other application programs. Four people actually used the voice dialing system in an office environment for a preliminary evaluation. Results were satisfactory.
