Dear Friends,
I wondered how will client and server communicate when a voice xml document is loaded. i.e How will a browser know that this web page has to be read out to the user.
Secondly, what tools are needed on client side to interpret voice xml. Is netscape and internet explorer voice xml enabled.

Highest Regards,
Aziz.

Voice XML needs a voice enabled browser. As far as I heard the voice enabled browser costs a lots at this stage $50k-80k US ? Internet explorer and Netscape are not voice enabled.
The browser has a module for voice recognition, etc.

VoiceXML needs a VoiceXML Interpreter to interpret the tags/elements of a VoiceXML document. As far as the browsers are concerned, a VoiceXML document is a document with a content type of "text/xml". So the browsers treat the VoiceXML document the same way it treats an xml document. Having said that, IE displays a voiceXML document beautifully with the + and - showing the nodes. As far as the latest release of Netscape(6.1), voiceXML document was rendered just like a text document.

Add to the previous post,
VoiceXML does not need any special tools on the client side. VoiceXML Interpreter or the Interpreter context should be able fetch the documents off a document server. VoiceXML has a <goto> tag which allows the execution of the script to move to a different context. You could specify a url address as the attribute for the goto element and the interpreter should be capable of fetching the document. If it is a url(http), the goto treats it just like a http request. Only catch is that the response should be of xml format, compliant with voicexml standards.
HTH,
