Shown in Figure 5-1,” are the functional components that comprise VoiceXML. The components are described below:

As we saw in Chapter 2,”, “VoiceXML essentials,” on page 24, VoiceXML provides control of the underlying speech recognition process through the definition of grammars using such languages as the Grammar Markup Language or GRXML.
