Abstract: In accordance with the invention, a method and system for accessing a dialog system employing a plurality of different clients, includes providing a first client device for accessing a conversational system and presenting a command to the conversational system by converting the command to a form understandable to the conversational system. The command is interpreted by employing a mediator, a dialog manager and a multi-modal history to determine the intent of the command based on a context of the command. A second client device is determined based on a predetermined device preference stored in the conversational system. An application is abstracted to perform the command, and the results of the performance of the command are set to the second client device.
