VoiceXMLKit provides tools developing and testing VoiceXML applications offline before the VoiceXML documents are deployed to servers.

More Information

The VoiceXMLKit conversation management component is designed to provide you a lot of flexiblity and minimize the programming necessary to validate and interpret VoiceXML.

To run a VoiceXML application, use the OpenSession method to create a session, then simply use RunDocument method to interpret the VoiceXML document. For example:

// Validate a VoiceXML document

To run a validate a VoiceXML document use the CompileDocument method. For example:

// Open session
_SessionID = NChantXM1.OpenSession();
// Interpret the document
NChantXM1.RunDocument(_SessionID, "mydocument.vxml");

To stop the VoiceXML application, simply use the CloseSession method. For example:

// Close session when CCXMDone event fires

Within Chant Developer Workbench, open the VoiceXML document and select the Compile Document menu item or press the toolbar button to validate the document.
