Multimodal human-computer interaction combining multiple input modalities is the key for permitting our highly skilled and coordinated communicative behavior to control computer systems in flexible and natural manner. In this paper a multimodal interaction platform, called Manitou, is presented. The platform empowers researchers and developers to employ speech, gestures and other modalities in applications, enabling multimodal interaction. Key features of the platform are exposed to the web environment to facilitate a fast prototyping and delivering applications, exploiting multimodal interfaces. Benefits of the platform have been proven by a sample application and subsequent user experience survey.
