Introducing the LumenVox Developer Network (LVDN)

The LumenVox Developer Network homepage.

San Diego, CA (OCT 8, 2013)
Today we rolled out our new speech developer centric site, the LumenVox Developer Network (LVDN). The site is relatively humble at the moment, but there are a number of interesting features we're excited about:

  1. A set of developer forums where you can exchange ideas, questions, advice, and just chat with your fellow speech developers. If you have any questions for us, please direct them there, as LumenVox staff members will be monitoring and participating in the discussions.
  2. An easy-to-use repository of LumenVox code samples for a variety of programming langauges and speech platforms. Some of these are samples have existed for a while but have been hard to find, we've also written some new ones (including a PHP speech recognition library for use with Asterisk).
  3. A library of whitepapers that includes some previously unpublished whitepapers: Collecting Data for Speech Tuning, and Calculating Speech Recognition Accuracy.

You'll note that in order to do things like post on the forums or view the complete whitepapers, you'll need to create an account. If you had an existing account on LumenVox.com, we've created an account for you in the LumenVox Developer Network. Check your inbox, as you should have received an e-mail with instructions on how to set your initial password.

Note that moving forward there will not be a link between your main LumenVox.com account (which lets you manage your LumenVox licenses) and your LVDN account — some limitations with the existing licensing system make this prohibitive. We plan to rectify this when we roll out the new licensing portal, but more about that later. For now just know that if you want to change your LVDN password or your LumenVox.com password, you'll need to change it in both places.

More exciting than what's currently available is what comes next, which we hope is the growth of a vibrant, active speech community. We'll be doing our best to grow the technical resources over the coming months (including shooting some new videos to supplement and replace some of our more outdated training videos), but we'd really like your help.

What do you want to see in LVDN? What resources would help you? Feel free to leave us a comment or post in the forum with your thoughts.
