In December, Google proposed [1] to public-webapps a Speech JavaScript
API that subset supports the majority of the use-cases in the Speech
Incubator Group's Final Report. This proposal provides a programmatic
API that enables web-pages to synthesize speech output and to use
speech recognition as an input for forms, continuous dictation and
control.

We have now posted in the Speech-API Community Group's repository, a
slightly updated proposal [2], the differences include:

 - Document is now self-contained, rather than having multiple
references to the XG Final Report.
 - Renamed SpeechReco interface to SpeechRecognition
 - Renamed interfaces and attributes beginning SpeechInput* to
SpeechRecognition*
 - Moved EventTarget to constructor of SpeechRecognition
 - Clarified that grammars and lang are attributes of SpeechRecognition
 - Clarified that if index is greater than or equal to length, returns null

We welcome discussion and feedback on this editor's draft. Please send
your comments to the public-speech-api-contrib@w3.org mailing list.
