Ask Ziggy is a service that allows developers to integrate natural language voice commands to applications. Ask Ziggy include voice-to-text functionality, voice-activated commands, and can be used across multiple platforms.
The Ask Ziggy API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of Ask Ziggy with other applications and to create new applications. Some example API methods include adding applications, creating events, and managing actions.
Of the many APIs we published this week, eleven were highlighted on the blog by our team of bloggers. In this post, we will launch those eleven into the spotlight, which include the TitanTV API. TitanTV is an online TV guide service that provides accurate over-the-air and satellite TV line-ups for a user’s specific area, utilizing geo-location technology. The TitanTV API allows users to access information on these line-ups as well as retrieve recording schedule entries. To learn more about the TitanTV APi visit the TitanTV site as well as the TitanTV API blog post.
Ask Ziggy, best known as the "Siri for Window's Phone," has launched the Ask Ziggy API, which enables natural speech processing within any app. The API enables speech processing, but must be used in conjunction with other speech services to complete the offering (e.g. Nuance, AT&T, etc.). Ask Ziggy expects the API to be used primarily for enhanced in-app search features; however, the opportunities extend much further than basic search.
