In VDK Studio there is two types of project:

  • Custom project.
    When you want to use custom technology bricks and not not only have a basic input/output assitant.
    This type is aimed for more complex projects. In this case, you will need to implement the code by yourself into the widgets.

  • No code assistant.
    When you want to create a quick proof of concept of voice recognition and voice synthesis without having to code.

When you launch the VDK Studio, you will have to choose whether you want to start a new project, import an existing project or browse into the playground.
