Please plan to attend the presentation and demo of Voice elVIAS by Digital 
Equity Scholar Juan Gilbert of Auburn University. On Tuesday, June 17 from 
noon to 2 p.m. CST in 5239 Beckman Institute there will be an Access Grid 
presentation giving an overview of the development of the voice user 
interface to elVIAS (http://elvias.ncsa.uiuc.edu/) as well as a 
demonstration of the system.

As part of the DE Visiting Scholar's Program Gilbert collaborated with 
members of the Visualization and Virtual Environments Group as well as the 
Knowledge and Learning Systems Group to create a voice interface to elVIAS. 
Gilbert and I will be broadcasting from the Access Grid located at Georgia 
Tech University.

The elVIAS search engine is an information retrieval, archival, and 
processing system for the ELearning domain. Voice elVIAS integrates 
automatic speech recognition (ASR) and information retrieval (IR) to 
provide hands-free, eyes-free access to data.

Thank you,
