This SDK provides an interface to the DOCOMO Speech Recognition API, enabling speech recognition to be added to Android applications. This particular iOS SDK contains technologies powered by NTT IT language processing, and provides support up to iOS 7.0.6. The SDK offers a recording time of 15 seconds. The API accepts spoken voice within an audio file, and transcribes the language detected into words, structuring the data into an XML format.

Amazon today announced the beta launch of a new version of the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) developer console that aims to streamline the experience of creating, managing and publishing Alexa skills. The new version of the developer console breaks the Alexa skill development lifecycle into four phases.
Twilio has really upped the ante with the release of its new iOS SDK for developing voice over IP applications. This means that any iOS App can quite easily add telephony via the Twilio API to its product. By providing an SDK for iOS, Twilio (a ProgrammableWeb sponsor) has lowered the bar for developers wanting to build VOIP applications. It only makes sense for a company that is a pure-play in the API business to do everything possible to encourage adoption among developers, and this release is another is a series of smart moves by Twilo. I expect that this will have a big impact developer adoption and would love to check back in with Twilio to hear how the project goes over the next couple months.
