The IWERF Project

The IWERF project aims at creating an information server integrating fax and vocal technologies. Users call a telephone-based server and ask for information by pronouncing a sequence of keywords. A phoneme-based, speaker-independent speech recognition engine decodes keywords, echoes them via a speech synthesizer (MBROLA) and gives a vocal summary of the information it can provide for the list of keywords provided. Users select documents, which are automatically faxed to them.

This project is under development
