By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

Speech technologies provider Loquendo has announced the latest release of its VoxNauta VoiceXML (News - Alert)/CCXML platform for developing multi-lingual, multi-voice IVRs and speech-enabled apps.
The latest version of the offering, VoxNauta 7.1.0, offers a number of new enhancements to make it easier to leverage their speech technologies for a number of scenarios.
The VoxNauta platform allows developers to develop applications that follow the VoiceXML 2.0 and 2.1, and CCXML 1.0 Web-based architecture and create voice services through the use of speech recognition and/or speech synthesis software.
With the offering, service developers can improve the impact of interactions through better management of user input and by bringing together synthetic speech with pre-recorded messages, music and special effects.

According to the company, the platform is available for Windows Server 2003 and 2008 as well as for Linux Red Hat (News - Alert) Enterprise 4.0 and 5.1 and makes it possible to have multi-language and multi-voice services on traditional PSTN/ISDN or VoIP networks.
The platforms VoIP interface is based on SIP/RTP protocols and, the company notes that "it's possible to interface VoxNauta with a PSTN/ISDN telephone network or with a PBX (News - Alert) through any standard Media Gateway"
Specific enhancements to the latest version of the platform outlined by the company include:

--A new CCXML interpreter conforming to the W3C (News - Alert) Last Call Working Draft of CCXML 1.0, expected to become a Candidate Recommendation shortly.

--Users can now exploit, at VoiceXML service level, all the unique features of Loquendo (News - Alert) ASR and TTS series 7, including: for TTS, reverb, voice timbre, activation/deactivation of Reading Styles, Unit Selection Tool; for ASR, enabling/disabling of background noise rejection, pattern matching untrig and compiled grammar caching.

--VoxNauta can now act as an MRF (Media Resource Function) element in the context of an IMS (IP MultiMedia Subsystem) Architectural Framework. In particular, it supports the RFC 4240 (Netann) SIP protocol. Through SIP and Netann, the AS (Application Server) can invoke VoiceXML scripts, as well as play announcement features or set up a conference call.
