With a little help from your libs
You can enhance the apps that were provided in the book by using the libs developed in other chapters. For example, you can enhance MusicBrain by adding grammars, or the VoiceLaunch app by using a VPA, or a VPA by using a multimodal interface… there are lots of combinations!
