The W3C Voice Browser Working Group announces the publication of the 
first working draft of the Pronunciation Lexicon Specification (PLS) [1],
designed to allow interoperable specification of pronunciation information 
for either speech recognition and speech synthesis engines within voice 
browsing applications. 
The language is intended to be easy to use by developers while supporting 
the accurate specification of pronunciation information for international 
use. The language allows one or more pronunciations for a word or phrase 
to be specified using a standard pronunciation alphabet or if necessary 
using vendor specific pronunciation alphabets. Pronunciations are grouped 
together into a PLS document which may be referenced from other markup 
languages, such as Speech Recognition Grammar Specification [2] and 
Speech Synthesis Markup Language [3].

Please send any comments and suggestions about PLS to the W3C Voice Browser 
public mailing list, www-voice@w3.org, by March 14, 2005.
