Track B
B105 – New W3C Language Standards for Developing Speech Applications
16:00 - 17:00
MODERATOR: James Larson, Vice President - Larson Technical Services

This session introduces three new, powerful languages from the W3C for developing speech applications:

  • Speech Synthesis Markup Language 1.0 (SSML 1.1) now provides better support for a broader set of natural (human) languages;
  • Pronunciation Lexicon Specification (PLS 1.0) enables interoperable specifications of pronunciation information for both speech synthesis and speech recognition engines; and
  • State Chart XML (SCXML) is a general-purpose event-based state machine language used to model both voice only and multimodal dialogues.
