W3C Launches Audio Incubator Group

Author(s) and publish date


W3C is pleased to announce the creation of the Audio Incubator Group, whose mission is to explore the possibility of starting one or more specifications dealing with various aspects of advanced audio functionality, including reading and writing raw audio data, and synthesizing sound or speech. The Audio Incubator Group will engage the various constituents of such specifications, including musicians, audio engineers, accessibility experts, user-interface designers, implementers, and hardware manufacturers, to collect use cases and requirements on what can and should be done for various specifications at different levels of priority, and deliver one or more reports including recommendations for specification work items. The following W3C Members have sponsored the charter for this group: Mozilla Foundation, PUC-Rico, BBC, and Google.

Incubator Activity work is not on the W3C standards track but in many cases serves as a starting point for a future Working Group.
