[Day 3] Vista Training in SG
Nothing to do today, Heard few topics, 2 of them are boring and I was going into asleep. The speaker was bad, the content is bad. Well. tonight I am going out with my 3 SG friends. As I blog last year, they were my uni schoolmate. All got married. They are coming at 7pm.
1) MCE was developed by Microsoft Research China. And you may build MCE application by using Hosted HTML, XBAP(XAML Browser Application) and MCML(Media Center Markup Langauge). And for more information, you may go to blog.mediacentersanbox.com and read their blog.
2) Speech Recognition(SR) and Text to Speech (TTS) are keeping research. Now, there will be English-US supporting in Vista Beta2. However, more will be coming when released Vista. But.....cantonese may not be including yet. Have to wait. And the speaker told us that about 40% of code need to rewrite for specific language, only about 60% of code can be share in difference langauge. And TTS, now Anna(the new female voice in Vista) can speak English more like human, you may try it if you have beta 2. But male sound are still no-name yet.
