> 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.
