Hebcal by Phone beta

speaker.gif Well, it turns out it wasn’t that hard. After just a couple of hours of playing around with VoiceXML, I managed to create a Tellme extension that works.

  1. Call Tellme at 1-800-555-TELL
  2. Say extensions
  3. Dial 00613
  4. Dial or say your 5-digit zipcode
  5. Listen to the candle-lighting times for your area

If you want to see my VoiceXML code, check out shabbat.vxml (the main voice menu) and see the CGI-generated results for 90210.

Next thing to do would be to write a Tellme extension that reads my email for me. Actually, looks like the guy who invented Bugzilla has already done that.
