Thanks for developing components and make them available in the Forge. I just would like just to ask if the Microsoft Speech Recognition using Azure Cognitive Services Connector in the below links are tested successfully on both Android and iOS mobile devices ?



The connector is listed under "Mobile" while the sample app is under web only.

So in case it does not work in Native, will it work in web mobile app ?


Hi Maitha,

The https://www.outsystems.com/forge/Component_Documentation.aspx?ProjectId=1428&ProjectName=azure-cognitive-services-connector is created in a mobile module but has mobile-specific elements like screens, local storage or client actions.

The https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component-overview/3921/azure-cognitive-services-sample uses the connector. Indeed this is a web application using the connector, but as the connector module is only using REST APIs from Azure, the question whether the functionality works on iOS or Android is yes.

In your mobile application, you can reference the connector actions, and use them just as it is done in the Web Demo application. And if you create a responsive web application that you run on your mobile device it will also work. The Azure Cognitive Services are only consumed by REST api and run on Azure, there is no device dependency.
