User Story

(Note: Vaani team has committed to a set of commands for v2.5. We are also reviewing additional items for feasibility in 2.5 timeframes as "stretch" goals.)

As a user / developer, I would like to use following commands with voice control. 

2.5 committed Goals:  
-- Call <contact>
-- Call <number>
-- Set an alarm
-- Set a timer
-- Open <App>
-- Languages: English (baseline). Post-loaded from mktplace: Spanish, French
-- Settings in the app for enabling Community contributions (record samples with language/accent for Mozilla’s Amazon cloud)

2.5 Stretch Goals: 
-- Play music + basic controls
-- Check messages (count of vmails, unread emails)
-- Check schedule 
-- Check Weather

As a result of Bug 1180710 Comment 14 language packs, in particular language packs'
support of different speech recognition languages, will no longer be in Fx OS 2.5.

So, either we will have to find a different way of supporting other languages or we
will have to support a single language.

Right now I am not sure what our path forward on this should be.
