Hands-Free Apps: Cortana Integration and Speech for your Windows Universal Apps

Cortana is the digital assistant that was first introduced in Windows Phone 8.1, and has since been incorporated into Windows 10 and the Microsoft Band. Using voice (or text) commands, users interact with Cortana to retrieve information, perform an action such as setting an alarm, or even launch an app on the phone that provides what they are looking for. Aside from Cortana itself, the Windows platform provides powerful and easy to use speech recognition and speech generation capabilities that developers can access. This session will take a look at how to integrate with Cortana and use the speech capabilities to enable hand-free features within your own Universal Apps.
