With the advancements of technology, today the needs and expectations of humans keep growing seeking for more convenience. People prefer to communicate with technology using natural interactive approaches rather than with a key-board or mouse. Voice recognition is one such mostly preferred natural interactive approach.
Though voice recognition was originally introduced in applications for differently abled individuals, today we see with the complexity in work environments, a majority of people prefer to use more natural interactive approaches such as voice commands due to its’ convenience.
The main objective of this project is to develop an Email client which allows users to perform tasks within the application by eliminating the use of the key-board or mouse. The system allows users to perform all the tasks within the application using voice commands. At present widely used web email service providers such as Gmail, yahoo etc do not support voice commands, the Voice Driven Email Client makes it possible to connect to a web based email client and carry out tasks using special voice commands. It will allow the users to dictate as well as navigate purely on voice commands.
This voice enabled email client introduces a better approach to accessing web-based email clients instead of remaining at the traditional text-based, typing and clicking approach. Further it will reach a wider target audience including differently abled individuals such as people without hands, people with difficulties in hand movements, dyslexic people who find it difficult to write and spell etc.
This document outlines the motivation, background, problem description, scope, research and analysis, design, implementation and testing carried out to develop the Voice Driven Email Client.
