Cordova

HMT-1 is fundamentally an Android 8.0 device. It runs standard Android applications and web pages.

Due to the fact that Cordova wrap's HTML/JavaScript into a native container it is best that we use a Javascript plugin. This due to the large number of elements that appear on an average web page and WearHF often needs assistance in understanding how to interpret them.

The general approach for speech enabling web pages relies on the use of JavaScript as a middle language, bridging the HMT-1 web browser and the underlying WearHF speech engine. The Javascript file is included into the web page and then WearML tags can be freely embedded into the require elements. These tags will provide hints to the speech engine, determining what should be speech enabled, and as importantly, what should not be speech enabled. All of the WearML tags will be skipped by regular browsers, but read in by the HMT-1 browser. In this way, production web pages (or HTML5 apps) can be built for all platforms including HMT-1
