Free access to Tellme Studio being retired.

On Friday, May 27th, 2011, Microsoft Tellme will retire free access to the MyStudio suite of services on Tellme Studio. We have been proud to offer these developer and test services at no cost to the voice community for the past 10 years, but the decision has been made to discontinue free access at this time. The affected services within MyStudio are:
  • Scratchpad — A tool for entering VoiceXML.
  • Application URL — The ability to provide the URL of a VoiceXML application.
  • Toll-Free Number — Access to all toll-free number functionality, including telephone access to Scratchpad and Application URL.
  • Debug Log — A tool for viewing logs of calls made to VoiceXML applications.
  • Record by Phone — A tool for recording prompts directly from a telephone.
  • Syntax Checker — A tool to validate the syntax of your VoiceXML documents.
Thank you to all who used these tools to develop their applications. We will continue to support the other documentation and services on Tellme Studio, to provide the community with the references and resources necessary to continue our goal of helping developers build great, innovative speech applications. In addition, Microsoft also provides the recently launched Lync Developer Portal, which provides free developer sandbox access to the Lync communications platform, including VoiceXML support developed by the Microsoft Tellme team.

Note: This discontinuation only applies to subscribers using the Tellme Studio free services, and will not affect services for Microsoft Tellme partners and customers.

SIP Studio, Free SIP Hosting, and Skype Voice Services being retired.

On Friday, November 12, 2010, Tellme Studio is retiring three Studio services: SIP Studio, Free SIP Hosting, and Skype Voice Services. If you are currently using SIP Studio, we recommend revising your application to call Tellme Studio using a standard telephone at 1-800-555-VXML (800-555-8965). For Free SIP Hosting, please migrate your application to a VXML hosting provider prior to the retirement of that service.

Once these services are retired, VoIP hard/soft phone calls to SIP URI's will no longer be accepted.

VoiceXML 2.0 has been a full W3C recommendation since March of 2004. VoiceXML 2.1, the latest version of the de-facto standard markup language for building voice applications, standardizes several commonly implemented enhancements to VoiceXML 2.0. This article gives you the information you need to port your existing code to VoiceXML 2.1.

Abstracting the data from your VoiceXML code allows you to build more easily customized and maintainable applications. Tellme's support for the proposed data element allows you to fetch data from the server without re-fetching the entire VoiceXML document. You manipulate the data in JavaScript using the Document Object Model, a W3C standard for programming XML documents.

Mixed initiative is a feature of VoiceXML 2.0 that improves the voice application experience for your users by allowing them to fill in multiple fields with only a single sentence. Learn how.
