Last Call Review Issues


Scott,

thanks for your inquiry.
Well the process issues are one problem. But I know they are not your
fault. 

The main focus was that we expected the VBWG to do more real technical
changes on the new VoiceXML spec. But it now seems that the group is
more interested to specify the existing documents more precisly, than to
insert new code elements, which could allow a better implementation of
dialog scripts etc. That was the main reason for the uttered
dissatisfaction.

So under this circumstances we surely accept the resolutions from the
VBWG for the moment. But we are looking forward for a new VoiceXML
review process to finally have the chance to add new flexibility and
extensions to VoiceXML. Because we think VoiceXML needs more extensions
to be better than other dialogue description languages which are
currenty on the market.

Thank you so far.

With kind regards

Stefan
