Abstract: Pervasive computing may provide multiple modes of interface for end users to access the internet applications at anytime from anywhere using any device. This article describes how multimodal user-interface pages for supporting various wireless devices can be implemented with multimodal transformation. It also illustrates how a Multimodal Web System (MWS) could be voice-enabled to support an interactive voice channel. This study provides insights for the design and implementation of successful business applications to catch the revolutionary opportunity and benefit of voice-enabled MWSs. In doing so, it contributes to the body of knowledge associated with the emergent pervasive computing environment.
Keywords: Java; mobile commerce; m-commerce; mobile communications; mobile financial services; multimodal web systems; pervasive computing; voice interface; user interfaces; interactive voice channels.
