Cortana Integration and Speech for your Windows Phone Apps


Hands-Free Apps: Cortana Integration and Speech for your Windows Phone Apps by Jason Follas.

Cortana is the digital assistant that was first introduced in Windows Phone 8.1, and has since been incorporated into Windows 10 and the Microsoft Band. Using voice (or text) commands, users interact with Cortana to retrieve information, perform an action such as setting an alarm, or even launch an app on the phone that provides what they are looking for. Aside from Cortana itself, the Windows platform provides powerful and easy to use speech recognition and speech generation capabilities that developers can access. This session will take a look at how to integrate with Cortana and use the speech capabilities to enable hand-free features within your own Universal Apps.

When arriving at Maritz please park in the long parking lot on the side of the building. Instead of entering through the front door please enter via the left-most door on the side of the building. It's located roughly in the middle of the building. You'll need to be buzzed in, and sign in with the security guard. Tell them that you're there for the .NET User Group meeting. You'll be directed up the stairs (immediately on the left after entering the building). We'll be meeting in the training rooms which are located to the right, in the middle of the floor.
