if you're booking the hotel (now available) for TPAC, make sure you check the currency, it was loading in CAD for me (cheaper than it appears when converted to USD)

Action Items


janina: on the i18n issue, we talked about it last week and I started to update it but it didn't get done

janina: if i18n can augment lang in HTML, we don't need to address this directly but if they don't, we need to go beyond SSML to achieve it

we need to address i18n, pluralization of units (incomplete interpret-as vs. sub), emotional factors of voice, (any others?)

Github Issues

Other Business

maybe we want to push for an update to SSML (it's been 10 years) and now we have more usage to point to

janina: uptake was slow

mhakkinen_: AMZ has "whisper" mode as an extension, maybe this sort of thing can help inform an update to SSML

would SSML bring EML on?

janina: it's a better fit

mhakkinen_: it would be good to reach out to Dan Burnett about this

janina: I will followup
