Sam: has not had a chance to review. Has not seen anything elsewhere. Haven't observed any new contributions to date.

Christine: has not seen anything either. Made one comment.

Mark: Added news reader use case, UC21.

<Irfan> https://github.com/w3c/pronunciation/issues/21

Christine: no additions at this time, open to suggestions

Irfan: we all need to review the document. Please provide feedback.

Christine: would like more detail.

Use case document

Irfan: Paul was working on it. Discussed approach in the last meeting.
... Paul is not here today. Spoke to Mark about issue JSON approach.
... Why don't we provide all SSML to XML format rather than JSON? Paul created issues with examples.

<Irfan> https://github.com/w3c/pronunciation/issues/23

Mark: Alexa apps are not HTML apps.
... Amazon is purely SSML, not mixed languages
... We looked at JSON based on feedback about the notion of inlining SSML into HTML was a nonstarter.

Janina: Direct is better. Let's take it to TPAC.

Mark: Not just web apps, have to include AT assistive technology consumer

Janina: have several markup approaches to present
... Give Chris Wilson a heads up before TPAC
... spec needs to be as generally applicable as we can make it

Mark: once we have more substance, we need to take the information to AT vendors
... focus July to start conversations.

Gap Analysis

Mark: no updates at this time. Taking a look at all of Paul's examples.
... Will talk to Steve on Friday, 11 am EST.

... continue work on documents
