Hi Paolo,

The clarifications here and in Issue R103-26 [1] helped me better understand
the intended usage for ASR (SRGS).  I had been previousl thinking only of
the scenarios you refer to below as "dictation or for unconstrained ASR".

I reread section 1.2 with this in mind, and I can see that you are referring
to that now, however, I think that, unless a person is more familiar with
the SRGS scenario than I was, they will still not appreciate exactly how
this is supposed to work.  I would recommend expanding section 1.2 with some
of the text you include here and the examples in Issue R103-26.

Thanks.  
RI

	Proposed Classification: Clarification / Typo / Editorial 
	
	Resolution: Reject 
	
	The two main uses of PLS are for SRGS (ASR) and SSML (TTS). In both
	these cases the PLS are applied on grapheme to define the phonemes
to be
	recognized (for ASR) and to be pronounced (for TTS). There are other
	uses of PLS, for instance in a dictation or for unconstrained ASR,
but
	which might not be covered by the current specification. 
	
	Please indicate whether you are satisfied with the VBWG's
resolution,
	whether you think there has been a misunderstanding, or whether you
wish
	to register an objection.

	Location in reviewed document:
	5.4, 2nd para
	
	Comment: 
	"Pronunciations are explicitly bound to one or more orthographies
within
	a element so homophones are easy to handle. See the following
	examples:"
	
	
	This should say, "homophones are easy to handle for text-to-speech".
	They are not easy to handle in an ASR context, and there should be
an
	informative note here like in 5.5, but referring to ASR rather than
TTS!
