Microsoft is open to adding this to the WebApps charter.

We certainly want to see work on a speech API for user agents proceed at W3C. Our priorities for the API are 1) a procedural (JavaScript) API and 2) a declarative syntax for speech recognition and text-to-speech in HTML. We think WebApps would be a good venue to bring speech to the attention of members who wouldn't normally participate in this area. On the other hand we recognise that there may be some members who are interested in moving speech forward but who might not be willing to make IPR commitments for other specifications that WebApps works on. If that is the case then we'd rather have them involved in a separate working group than not benefit from their contributions.

Cheers,

Adrian.
