Higher quality of results: businesses that produce commercial software can dispose of a more limited set of human resources than the multitude of competent and motivated experts that participate in the design, development and test of open source projects. Open source software is often ahead of competitors on the technology side, it has better documentation, it is more stable and secure.
Lower setup costs: usually setup costs for a new project can be split in three parts: license acquisition costs, software installation and customization costs, and internal costs due to changing and adapting processes and organization. The cost of a project based on open source technologies can be up to a third less costly as it completely avoids the license acquisition costs of commercial software.
Lower maintenance costs: using open source software is easier. It’s not that just anyone can set it up just like an expert, but because you can have an expert configure it without having to worry about it breaking up in the future.
Easier to customize: any customer can modify the software (or have others modify it) to implement solutions tailored to ones own needs, even if the producer or reseller of the software is not capable or does not want to add those same customizations.
Faster update path: any one open source product may be the work of a multitude of developers residing all over the world. Each functionality is managed by a team of specialists that continuosly integrate old and new technologies.
Results are more portable: open source software can often be used on different operating systems and is localized in different user languages. It is not rare that the users themselves contribute to the availability of versions that operate in different technical environments or to the localization of the software.
Longer software life-time: open source software will always be available because the developer community will update it continuosly. The life-time of commercial software is, on the other hand, dependent on the choices made by its producer.
More power to the consumers: open source software increases competition among developers and reduces the risk of a monopoly. Open source software produces benefits similar to those of any other open market: the competition between similar products lowers costs, stimulates innovation and specialization.
- Vocal applications – use voice and text-to-speech as the only interface
- Multi-modal applications – in which the voice and TTS are just one of the provided interfaces
- Biometric applications – voice based user recognition and authentication
