ASAPI: Advanced Speech API (AT&T)
The AT&T ASAPI Specification is a open, cross-platform, easy-to-use speech API
that can support speech engines from AT&T and other vendors. ASAPI does
not replace the Microsoft Speech API, but it
provides extensions and enhancements to the Microsoft SAPI Specification
including support for SAPI-compatible applications.
The ASAPI Specification defines two types of interfaces. The "ASAPI Extensions"
interface which provides extensions to the MS-SAPI interface as well as C++ class
encapsulation of SAPI functionality. The "Visual ASAPI" interface provides an even
higher-level abstraction of SAPI/ASAPI low-level functionality such that application
developers can quickly and easily embed speech technology into existing or new
applications. Special Purpose Recognizers are examples of Visual ASAPI interfaces
which integrate lower-level functionality that an application developer can access
via a simple interface.
