The easiest way to rapidly prototype a telephone speech data
collection application is to use the graphically based application
builder. lk_appbuilder is the highest level interface available for
the system. It allows the user access to all possible parameters in
all situations, thus providing a simple interface to data collection
On-line, context sensitive help is always available, detailing the
specifics of each parameter.
A novel feature to the system is the graphical application debug mode,
which maps a running application to the screen in real time. This
utility is optimized to have an easy learning curve for novice users,
yet is powerful enough to be useful to experienced users. Hence
lk_appbuilder is the preferred way to prototype real systems.
