The Voice Browser Working Group met in Cambridge, MA Nov. 5-6.  November
5 was devoted entirely to VXML 3.0.  We refined our strategies for
managing  media control, external events, and and discussed the use of
primitives (which we call fundamentals) and how they can be combined to
form higher level actions.  We met with the X-Forms Working Group to
discuss common eventing strategies.  We encouraged  the reestablishment
of the Backplane incubator group and agreed to have some of our members
participate in that group.

On November 6 we voted to publish the Pronunciation Specification
Language as a candidate recommendation, discussed the attributes of the
<audio> element in the Speech Synthesis Markup Language 1.1,  and
reviewed the architectural components and primitives of Speaker
Identification and Verification which will be part of VXML 3.0.  During
the afternoon we met jointly with the Multimodal Working Group to
discuss the State Chart Markup Language, reviewing the new structure of
the specification document as well as the eventing structure.

The CCXML subgroup of the VBWG met on Nov. 4 to write and review 
assertions and tests for CCXML.

Our next Face to Face meeting will be in Orlando on March 5-7, 2008.
