Jaspis - a framework for multilingual adaptive speech applications

Markku Turunen, Jaakko Hakulinen

We introduce Jaspis, an open framework for adaptive speech applications. Jaspis is designed to support distributed, highly context-sensitive applications that adapt to a user and an environment. Jaspis is especially designed for multilingual applications. In this paper we introduce the fundamental principles of the Jaspis framework, including shared information management, evaluator-based agent frameworks (for dialogue management and speech outputs) and input agent based communication management. A multilingual speech e-mail client, Postimies (Mailman), is described as an example application. Jaspis is written in Java and will soon be freely available for researchers and application developers.
