Hello,

   our project develops an open source voice browser, and we are in the
process of creating an implementation report for VoiceXML 2.0. Our voice
browser handles most of VoiceXML 2.0, except speech recognition. We think
that VoiceXML is very usable even without speech recognition, and
multilinguality in Europe and Asia (we have Asian partner as well) puts an
extra burden on adding speech recognition to voice browsers.

Unfortunately, the test suite checks many features of VoiceXML (e.g. the
correct implementation of FIA) through the use of speech input and speech
grammars. This means that cca. 40% of the tests contains speech grammar,
which in many cases could be substituted with a DTMF grammar, without
loosing the test target (examples are assertions 143 and 1071).

Our question is whether we can modify these tests to use DTMF
input/grammar instead of speech input/grammar (where appropriate), and
provide an implementation report using these tests?

Best regards,
