Incubator Activity > W3C HTML Speech Incubator Group

This XG published their Final Report on 6 December 2011.

The mission of the HTML Speech Incubator Group, part of the Incubator Activity, is to determine the feasibility of integrating speech technology in HTML5 in a way that leverages the capabilities of both speech and HTML (e.g., DOM) to provide a high-quality, browser-independent speech/multimodal experience while avoiding unnecessary standards fragmentation or overlap. The HTML Speech Incubator Group will collect and review use cases, requirements, and HTML change requests on this topic and present a consolidated summary of the same in its final report.
