In this paper we describe a multi-purpose Spoken Dialogue System platform associated with two distinct applications as an home intelligent environment and remote access to information databases. These applications differ substantially on contents and possible uses but gives us the chance to develop a platform where we were able to represent diverse services to be accessible by a spoken interface. The implemented voice input/output possibilities and the service independence level opens a wide range of possibilities for the development of new applications using the current components of our Spoken Dialogue System.
