The Voice Browser Working Group Face-to-face in Detroit on June 7-9 was 
hosted by EDS and OnStar.

The Working Group is considering starting a work item to define a 
lexicon language for speech applications.  If you are interested in 
participating in this work, please contact the Working Group chair by 
e-mail at jim@larson-tech.com.

Much of the F2F meeting time was used to refine V3, the follow on to VoiceXML 2.0 and 2.1. The purpose of V3 is to provide powerful dialog capabilities that can be used to build advanced speech applications, and to provide these capabilities in a form that can be easily and cleanly integrated with other W3C markup languages. V3 will offer platform vendors the choice between VoiceXML 2.x or dialog markup languages that they define themselves. Cross platform support is ensured through an interoperable means to bind markup components to definitions built upon a set of primitive objects  that support speech recognition, prompts, DTMF, telephony, voice verification, recording and playback. Below the object layer is an  implementation layer consisting of platform functions, capabilities  and technologies available either locally to the platform itself or  remotely via access to services elsewhere. This work will continue  in extended duration teleconferences and during most of the next Face-to-Face meeting in September

Thanks to EDS and OnStar for providing meeting facilities and 
team-building activities.
