To anyone interested in educational applications of HTML:

This twelve page article from Educational Testing Service (ETS) 
and the Instructional Management System (IMS) project explains 
in accurate detail exactly why HTML needs microphone and scanner 
binary file upload:

Please, if you do nothing else, read the examples on the top of 
page two.  There is no question that the capabilities are vital to 
education the world over.

Why would anyone want to wait for an incompatible redesign of HTML 
forms, when standard file upload can be extended without the loss 
of interoperability?  Please let me know if there is any reason 
not to support the draft:

Thank you for your help,
