This is an XML namespace reserved for use with the SSML 1.0 Implementation Report.

About SSML 1.0: The Voice Browser Working Group has sought to develop standards to enable access to the Web using spoken interaction. The Speech Synthesis Markup Language Specification is one of these standards and is designed to provide a rich, XML-based markup language for assisting the generation of synthetic speech in Web and other applications. The essential role of the markup language is to provide authors of synthesizable content a standard way to control aspects of speech such as pronunciation, volume, pitch, rate, etc. across different synthesis-capable platforms.

The SSML 1.0 Implementation Report describes a framework for authoring SSML tests. The framework encourages a consistent format for writing differnt kinds of tests to be authored in a straightforward manner. By employing a stylesheet, vendors may adapt the framework to their own test infrastructure. For example, a test infrastructure may present the instruction for a test visually instead of via synthesised text.

Note: This namespace may change without notice. For updated information, please refer to the latest version of the SSML Implementation Report.
