An Introduction to SiriKit

by Grant Klimaytys

This course will show you an overview of Sirikit as well as how to leverage the power of Siri to create voice commands and speech-to-text dictation for your apps.

What you'll learn

Wouldn't it be great if an app user could simply ask to use one of your app's features directly from the Siri interface? This course, An Introduction to SiriKit, will show you how to create vocal commands using the SiriKit framework. First, you'll go over what SiriKit can and cannot do along with a preview of what you will be creating in the course. Next, you get to see what Intents Extensions are and how an app handles them when communicating with SiriKit, as well as how to develop a UI that is called after Siri receives vocal instruction. Finally, you'll see how to record and store audio then transfer it to Siri for transcription. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to create fully-featured voice dictation using SiriKit. Software required: Xcode 8.
