Join mobility pioneer Nick Landry and popular author/teacher Jeremy Foster as they share their practical experience in computer speech technologies and mobile app development scenarios.
Explore the why and how of speech apps, tour Cortana, and review the capabilities of the Speech SDK in Windows and Windows Phone. Work with speech synthesis, look at integrating Cortana, check out voice commands, and find out how to build speech-enabled mobile apps with Visual Studio for Windows devices.
