Want to add Cortana to your app? Whether you're into text-to-speech (TTS) technology for accessibility, social responsibility, or gaming (or all of the above!), you're probably excited about the possibilities that Cortana offers. Mobility pioneer Nick Landry and popular author/teacher Jeremy Foster share their practical experience in computer speech technologies and mobile app development scenarios.?

Explore the why and how of speech apps, tour Cortana, and review the capabilities of the Speech SDK in Windows and Windows Phone. Work with speech synthesis, look at integrating Cortana, check out voice commands, and find out how to build speech-enabled mobile apps with Visual Studio for Windows devices. You'd be surprised at what you can do with as little as three lines of code!
