You’ve Got Mail! Calendar, Weather and More: Customizable Phone Access to Personal Information

Abstract

We present a design and a prototype of a system that provides access to calendar, email, weather, and news information over a phone using a VoiceXML interface. The system provides quick access to personal information, while enabling but not requiring interactivity. As one major application, we envision the system being used while commuting to work. At home, users define their preferences regarding content and order of presentation using a website. On the road, the personalized audio “feed” plays like a radio news show. Instead of commercials, the user is reminded of today’s meetings, deadlines and listens to the email inbox. Author
