Genesta launches SyVox Emulator

Supports emulation schemes including ANSI, 5250, and 3270

By CBR Staff Writer

Genesta has released SyVox Emulator, which it claims to voice enable an enterprise (WMS or ERP) application without requiring any changes to the enterprise application.

The company said that the SyVox Emulator speech enables legacy green screen applications running over terminal emulation (TE) connected to mid-range and mainframe platforms including IBM’s iSeries (AS400), AIX, and HPUX. It supports emulation schemes including ANSI, 5250, and 3270.

According to Genesta, the SyVox Emulator is middleware that resides on a web server (Microsoft’s IIS), acting as a bridge between SyVox VoiceXML traffic from a mobile computer and a terminal emulation session on the remote host.

Within the SyVox Emulator, the screen output is captured and translated into one or more voice enabled screens converting the application’s output into a conversation. The screen capture and translation functions are accomplished through intuitive scripting that can be accomplished by non-programmers.
