We are pleased to announce the advancement of Speech Synthesis Markup
Language (SSML) Version 1.1 to Proposed Recommendation on 23 February.

SSML is designed to provide a rich, XML-based markup language for
assisting the generation of synthetic speech in Web and other
applications.  The essential role of the markup language is to provide
authors of synthesizable content a standard way to control aspects of
speech such as pronunciation, volume, pitch, rate, etc. across
different synthesis-capable platforms.  SSML 1.1 improves SSML 1.0
support for a broader set of natural (human) languages

The specification is now available as follows.
