Spanish Language Support Enabled for Bill Lookup

I continue to tinker with my application that allows multi-channel access to the NY Senate Open Leg API. This application allows users to obtain bill information and status through a variety of different user agents.

I’ve now added support for Spanish language callers to the telephone interface. I translated all of the prompts using Google’s translation services.

Give it a whirl at (646) 736-2439 – any feedback is welcome.
