I got the impression that there is more consensus around the more general:

"User agents must provide a default interface to control speech recognition."

> I think we need something like this, especially in the development phase. However, I think there's a danger that we might get bogged down in "high quality", especially if we think that "high quality" includes "visually appealing". I think "informative" and "usable" would be better descriptions.
> Also, a high-quality, or  even just informative and usable, default visual interface will need to be different for different devices, depending on screen size, keyboard, touchscreen vs. mouse, availability of physical buttons, etc. We can't address every device, so should we just focus on one or two major devices, like desktop browser and "generic small-screen device"?
