The SSML subgroup of the Voice Browser Working Group held its fifth
meeting in Beijing on April 24-26, 2007.  Hosted by the Chinese Academy
of Sciences, the meeting included attendees by Toshiba, Panasonic, the
Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, IBM, iFLYTEK, the Chinese University
of Hong Kong, France Telecom, and Nuance.  


In this meeting we focused heavily on revising the new text for voice
and xml:lang to address concerns raised in a review by the larger Voice
Browser Working Group.  The revised text is much clearer and includes
defaults for the new attributes that we believe will assist authors
transitioning from SSML 1.0.  We also updated the text surrounding
sub-word annotation based on feedback by the main body of the Voice
Browser Working Group, reviewed all outstanding change requests, and
began planning for the Last Call Working Draft and Candidate
Recommendation phases.  We have begun preparations for developing test
assertions for the Implementation Report plan and expect to write some
initial assertions before our next meeting.


We expect to publish both an updated Working Draft of the specification
and a revised Requirements document before our next meeting.


Our next meeting will be held July 4-6, 2007 in Hangzhou, China.


Dan Burnett and Zhi Wei Shuang, Co-chairs, Speech Synthesis Subgroup,
