Voice Assist combined the latest speech technology with Internet-based information and a world-class telecommunications network, to provide the hosted speech platform and simple development tools that enabled MDR to go from concept to commercial product quickly. With a speech driven user interface, Voice Assist is ideally suited for a mobile hands busy environment, like in the car, or on the go.
Kansas City Public Television is the first PBS member station in the country to offer MDR’s #250 service that allows viewers to support the station and their favorite shows. The #250 is being displayed in fund-raising appeals after shows or mentioned by on-air personalities. Viewers simply dial #250 on their mobile phone, and say "KCPT" at the prompt. They are then connected to a human voice that can accept donation information in a secure fashion.
