Hi www-voice,

The Voice Browser Working Group just published the Last Call
Working Draft of Semantic Interpretation for Speech Recognition:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-semantic-interpretation-20041108/

Readers of this list are very much welcome to review this draft
and send last call comments before 5 December 2004.

Abstract

This document defines the process of Semantic Interpretation for
Speech Recognition and the syntax and semantics of semantic
interpretation tags that can be added to speech recognition grammars
to compute information to return to an application on the basis of
rules and tokens that were matched by the speech recognizer. In
particular, it defines the syntax and semantics of the contents of
Tags in the Speech Recognition Grammar Specification.

Semantic Interpretation may be useful in combination with other
specifications, such as the Stochastic Language Models (N-Gram)
Specification, but their use with N-grams has not yet been studied.

The results of semantic interpretation describe the meaning of a
natural language utterance. The current specification represents this
information as an ECMAScript object, and defines a mechanism to
serialize the result into XML. The W3C Multimodal Interaction Activity
is defining a data format (EMMA) for representing information
contained in user utterances. It is believed that semantic
interpretation will be able to produce results that can be included in
EMMA.
