The Speech API Community Group has been proposed:


The goal and scope of this Community Group is to produce a JavaScript
Speech API that supports the majority of use-cases in the the Speech
Incubator Group\'s Final Report [1], but is a simplified subset API,
such as this proposal [2]. For this initial specification, we believe
that a simplified subset API will accelerate implementation,
interoperability testing, standardization and ultimately developer
adoption. This JavaScript Speech API will enable web developers to
incorporate scripts into their web pages that can generate
text-to-speech output and can use speech recognition as an input for
forms, continuous dictation and control. Specification of HTML markup
and a network speech protocol are out-of-scope of this Community Group.

Once the group has a total of five supporters, W3C launch the group
