ScanSoft is pleased to have been an active participant in the W3C Voice
Browser Working Group, and in the development and proliferation of the SSML
specification. 
It is clear that SSML, together with the related SRGS, VoiceXML and SI
specifications, is integral to the development of advanced technologies that
change the way we communicate, from interactive voice response solutions to
in-vehicle automotive applications. Businesses and consumers alike will
benefit from the support of SSML in ScanSoft's range of RealSpeak synthesis
products to add the most natural speech output to their applications. 
The Scansoft implementation was run on the official test set
ssml-ir-20040119.zip with following modifications applied on the .txml
files: 
*	79/79.txml
The removal of "xml:lang" attribute from <speak> element 
*	91/91.txml and 92/92.txml
The replacement of sentence by s 
*	27/27.txml
The replacement of paragraph by p 
*	223/223.txml and 224/224.txml and 228/228.txml and 229/229.txml
The white space between the intonation points had to be removed, because
otherwise the validation against the schema failed. 
*	287/287.txml
"hz" had to replaced with "Hz", because otherwise the validation against the
schema failed. 
*	288/288.txml
"St" had to replaced with "st", because otherwise the validation against the
schema failed. 
 
Regards,
An Buyle and Luc Van Tichelen
