Chant Developer Workbench 2016

Develop Software that Speaks, Listens, and Interacts with Users.

Chant Developer WorkbenchChant Developer Workbench is comprised of essential tools and class libraries for developing software that speaks, listens, and interacts with users. It provides an IDE for developing and interactively testing speech and natural user interface technologies. You can manage conversations, grammars, movement, profiles, lexicons, speech, and text-to-speech markup directly within application software you develop and deploy.

Chant software makes it easy to voice enable Windows 10 Apps (UWP) certified for the Microsoft Store.

The Chant Developer Workbench interactive toolset provides development and testing environment for working with:

Design Grammars with GrammarKit

A GrammarKit application can:

  • Generate syntax-independent and -specific grammars;
  • Compile grammar source from buffer, file, resource, stream, and string formats;
  • Persist compiled grammar binary to buffer, file, and stream formats;
  • Generate pronunciation phonemes; and
  • Dynamically switch among grammar compilers and syntax formats.

Within the Chant Developer Workbench IDE, you can:

  • Create and edit grammars in native grammar syntax;
  • Generate word pronunciation phonemes;
  • Edit word pronunciation phonemes (requires LexiconKit);
  • Compile and debug grammars; and
  • Test grammars with live and recorded audio, and text simulation (requires SpeechKit).

Within the Chant Developer Workbench (UWP) IDE, you can:

  • Create and edit grammars in native grammar syntax;
  • Compile and debug grammars; and
  • Test grammars with live audio (requires SpeechKit).

 

Track Movement with KinesicsKit

A KinesicsKit application can:

  • Capture and map color, depth, and body data;
  • Record and playback audio files; and
  • Integrate movement tracking with speech technology.

Within the Chant Developer Workbench IDE, you can:

  • Render and analyse colour, depth, and body data; and
  • Validate sensor image streams.

 

Tailor Pronunciations with LexiconKit

A LexiconKit application can:

  • Edit locally installed lexicons;
  • Create and delete lexicon word pronunciations on demand;
  • Export and import lexicon word pronunciations for ensuring maximum recognition accuracy and speech synthesis quality; and
  • Add and remove dictation shortcuts.

Within the Chant Developer Workbench IDE, you can:

  • Create and edit W3C lexicons (.pls);
  • Create and edit Cepstral lexicon file (.txt);
  • Create and edit Nuance Vocalizer and VoCon user dictionary text file (.dct);
  • Create, edit, export, and delete SAPI 5 user and application lexicons;
  • Generate word pronunciation phonemes; and
  • Edit word pronunciation phonemes.

 

Administer Speaker Profiles with ProfileKit

A ProfileKit application can:

  • Create and delete speaker profiles on demand;
  • Train speaker profiles; and
  • Backup and restore speaker profiles for ensuring maximum recognition accuracy and reliability.

Within the Chant Developer Workbench IDE, you can:

  • Create and delete speaker profiles;
  • Enumerate speaker profiles; and
  • Invoke recogniser built-in speaker training;
  • Design and test custom speaker training;

 

Recognise and Synthesise Speech with SpeechKit

A SpeechKit application can:

  • Control application functions by speaking rather than having to use a mouse or keyboard;
  • Prompt users for applicable data capture;
  • Capture data by speaking rather than typing;
  • Confirm data capture with spoken or audio acknowledgement;
  • Transcribe audio buffers, files, and streams to text; and
  • Synthesise speech to audio buffers, files, and streams.

Within the Chant Developer Workbench IDE, you can:

  • Enumerate audio devices and speech engines for selection and testing of audio-, recogniser-, and synthesiser-specific features;
  • Trace audio, recognition, and synthesis events;
  • Support grammar activation and testing (requires GrammarKit); and
  • Support TTS markup playback (requires VoiceMarkupKit).

Within the Chant Developer Workbench (UWP) IDE, you can:

  • Enumerate audio devices and speech engines for selection and testing of audio-, recogniser-, and synthesiser-specific features;
  • Trace audio, recognition, and synthesis events;
  • Support grammar activation and testing (requires GrammarKit); and
  • Support TTS markup playback (requires VoiceMarkupKit).

 

Fine-tune Speech Synthesis with VoiceMarkupKit

A VoiceMarkupKit application can:

  • Generate markup language in Microsoft SAPI 5 XML, Nuance L&H Native Control Sequence, and W3C SSML syntax;
  • Generate pronunciation phonemes for Acapela, Cepstral, Microsoft SAPI 5, Microsoft Speech Platform, and Nuance Vocalizer synthesisers; and
  • Dynamically switch among speech APIs and syntax formats.

Within the Chant Developer Workbench IDE, you can:

  • Create and edit documents with TTS markup;
  • Generate TTS markup;
  • Generate word pronunciation phonemes;
  • Edit word pronunciation phonemes (requires LexiconKit); and
  • Playback text with TTS markup (requires SpeechKit).

Within the Chant Developer Workbench (UWP) IDE, you can:

  • Create and edit documents with TTS markup;
  • Generate TTS markup; and
  • Playback text with TTS markup (requires SpeechKit).

 

Enrich Conversations with VoiceXMLKit

A VoiceXMLKit application can:

  • Dynamically generate VoiceVXML; and
  • Run VoiceXML documents as a desktop application.

Within the Chant Developer Workbench IDE, you can:

  • Create and edit VoiceXML documents;
  • Test VoiceXML documents with microphone audio and keypad data; and
  • Trace runtime events.

 

 

Interactive Development Environment

Chant Developer Workbench

Chant Developer Workbench provides a comprehensive development and testing environment for working with speech and natural user interface technology for desktop, server, and Windows 10 Apps (UWP) that features:

  • Multi-document, interactive, customisable environment;
  • Powerful editor with colour-coded formatting, intelliprompt, optional outlining, optional line numbers, undo-redo, word wrap, and find/replace;
  • Resource browsers for testing; and
  • Event tracing.

The tabbed-document interface provides for fast switching among multiple documents and browsers.

The editing environment is designed to accelerate speech technology grammar and markup development with built-in syntax checking and prompting.

The multi-docked windows layout is configurable to yield productivity for various development and testing scenarios.

Toolbars can be easily customised to display the facilities most often used.

Window layout and toolbar settings are persisted across executions.
