W3C Launches HTML Speech Incubator Group

   30 August 2010 | Archive


   W3C is pleased to announce the creation of the HTML Speech
   Incubator Group, whose mission is to determine the feasibility
   of integrating speech technology in HTML5 in a way that
   leverages the capabilities of both speech and HTML (e.g., DOM)
   to provide a high-quality, browser-independent
   speech/multimodal experience while avoiding unnecessary
   standards fragmentation or overlap. The following W3C Members
   have sponsored the charter for this group: Voxeo, Microsoft,
   Openstream, Google, AT&T, Mozilla. Read more about the
   Incubator Activity, an initiative to foster development of
   emerging Web-related technologies. Incubator Activity work is
   not on the W3C standards track but in many cases serves as a
   starting point for a future Working Group.

       Web on TV
       Tokyo, Japan
       With the support of the Japan Ministry of Internal Affairs
       and Communications
       The demand for access to applications, video, and other
       network services continues to grow. The Web platform itself
       continues its expansion to support mobile devices,
       television, home appliances, in-car systems, and more
       consumer electronics. To meet the growing demand, the Web
       platform of the future will require smarter integration of
       non-PC devices with Web technology so that both hardware
       and software vendors can provide richer Web applications on
       various devices at lower costs.

       solicit contributions on techniques for `sticky policies'
       that ensure that policies constantly move along with the
       related data.

       The Multilingual Web - Where Are We?
       Madrid, Spain
       Hosted by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
       Today, the World Wide Web is fundamental to communication
       in all walks of life. As the share of English web pages
       decreases and that of other languages increases, it is
       vitally important to ensure the multilingual success of the
       World Wide Web.
       The MultilingualWeb project is looking at best practices
       and standards related to all aspects of creating,
       localizing and deploying the Web multilingually. The
       project aims to raise the visibility of existing best
       practices and standards and identify gaps. The core vehicle
       for this is a series of four events which are planned for
       the coming two years. As the first of the four events, this
       workshop will introduce and review currently available best
       practices and standards aimed at helping content creators,
       localizers, tools developers, and others meet the
       challenges of the multilingual Web.
