Objectives and Approach

The objective of SUNSTAR is to show the benefits and enhancements that human/computer interfaces can offer when they are based on speech input/output. The project is demonstrating this by realising prototypes in two fields of speech application which represent market sectors of rapidly growing importance:

The project is applications-driven in the sense that it concentrates on the integration of speech functions into demonstrator systems rather than on fundamental research issues of speech recognition and speech output.

Dialogue design and the associated ergonomic aspects are a major concern of the project, bearing in mind the need to gain wider acceptability for speech interfaces in real-world applications. Another key issue is the integration of speech technology with other input/output devices.

Exploitation

The SUNSTAR project concentrates primarily on the integration of existing technologies; this has contributed to the industrial products and services in the companies.
