In this paper, we report the significant results of a fully-implemented voice operated dialogue system, and particularly its main component: the Dialogue Manager (DM). Just like for other interfaces, spoken interfaces require a well-conducted design, implying a good analysis of the users’ needs throughout the dialogue. The VODIS project1 has led to the(More)

Considering the limitations of Speech Recognition for the development of user-system dialogues in real applications, robustness is a primary objective. In this paper, we describe the most essential characteristics of the Dialogue Manager of a driver information system that is controlled by voice, mainly showing how its design has been driven by the(More)
We describe the design and implementation of the dialogue management module in a voice operated car-driver information system. The literature on designing 'good' user interfaces involving natural language dialogue in general and speech in particular is abundant with useful guidelines for actual development. We have tried to summarize these guidelines in 7(More)
