Voice Controlled Radio

Enabling broadcast reception for Smart Speakers

The EBU and NAB co-funded a project to create a demonstrator for a radio device able to be entirely controlled by voice. This demonstrates the concept of the 'Single Voice Service List', and uses openly-standardized metadata from the broadcaster (using RadioDNS lookup, ETSI 103 270, and the Service and Programme Information data, ETSI TS 102 818) to automatically select between DAB+/IP/FM. The project was implemented by hacking the underlying Alexa Voice Service SDK.
