W3C has launched the Speech API Community Group:


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.
