Call for Review: Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) Version 1.1
Proposed Recommendation

   23 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8728

   The Voice Browser Working Group has published a Proposed
   Recommendation of "Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML)
   Version 1.1." The Speech Synthesis Markup Language
   Specification is designed to provide a rich, XML-based markup
   language for assisting the generation of synthetic speech in
   Web and other applications. The essential role of the markup
   language is to provide authors of synthesizable content a
   standard way to control aspects of speech such as
   pronunciation, volume, pitch, rate, etc. across different
   synthesis-capable platforms. SSML 1.1 improves SSML 1.0 support
   for a broader set of natural (human) languages. Known
   implementations are documented in the Implementation Report,
   along with the associated test suite. Comments are welcome
   through 23 March. Learn more about the Voice Browser Activity.

Call for Review: XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.1 Proposed
Recommendation

   25 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8729

   The XML Core Working Group has published a Proposed
   Recommendation of "XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.1."
   This specification defines the XML Linking Language (XLink)
   Version 1.1, which allows elements to be inserted into XML
   documents in order to create and describe links between
   resources. It uses XML syntax to create structures that can
   describe links similar to the simple unidirectional hyperlinks
   of today's HTML, as well as more sophisticated links. Comments
   are welcome through 31 March. Learn more about the Extensible
   Markup Language (XML) Activity.

Candidate Recommendation Updated for Timed Text Markup Language
(TTML) 1.0

   23 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8727

   The Timed Text Working Group has published an updated Candidate
   Recommendation of "Timed Text Markup Language (TTML) 1.0."
   TTML is a content type that represents timed text media for the
   purpose of interchange among authoring systems. Timed text is
   textual information that is intrinsically or extrinsically
   associated with timing information. This an updated document
   based on implementation experience; see the "list of changes."
   A test suite for TTML is available, along with its coverage
   report and a preliminary implementation report. The test suite
   and implementations are work in progress and may not reflect
   all of the changes of this document. Learn more about the Video
   in the Web Activity.

Second Web Compatibility Test for Mobile Browsers Released

   23 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8725

   The Mobile Web Test Suites Working Group has just released a
   brand new Web Compatibility Test for Mobile Browsers. Based on
   the same idea of evaluating support of a number of Web
   technologies at a glance as in the first Web Compatibility Test
   published in July 2008, this second version features a number
   of more recent technologies that promise to make Web browsers
   more powerful, in particular on mobile devices. Learn more
   about the Mobile Web Initiative.
