Apologies if this has been posted on the wrong forum, I wish to provide
feedback on the VoiceXML standard, and a possible limitation in designing
voice dialogs.

We have a particular application where the call must last for no longer than
a specific period of time. The problem is that we cannot limit the maximum
time a user is within a dialog or interactive block.

The VoiceXML standard does define a 'timeout' attribute on dialogs which
allows begin and end of input timeout durations, but we need an overall
'overriding' limit for the total time within the dialog.

The 'maxtime' attribute on 'record', is similar to what we have in mind. It
should be possible to constrain each and every dialog to a total interaction

regards, Chris Royles / development team.
