12Overview of Majordome Background tasks (server-side only): sorting and filtering messages from different sources ( , voice, fax, SMS,…);extracting relevant information for reporting to user (names of senders, subject,…).Dialogue with the user: over phone or Web.The system presents the state of the mailbox, the type of messages, their sender, subject, and may sum them up or read them on request;The users access their mailbox, addressbook, time schedule, or URIs (Web addresses).
13Voice technology in Majordome Server side background tasks:continuous speech recognition applied to voice messages upon receptionDetection of sender’s name and subjectUser interaction:Identification of the speaker (and Verification if necessary)Speech recognition (receiving users’ commands through voice interaction)Text-to-speech synthesis (reading text summaries, s or faxes)
