I would also like to recommend that the duration attribute, which is
currently proposed in a comment, along with the format attribute (not
parameter as I wrote below, sorry) also be included, and the Media
Capture in HTML be allowed to accept a fully parameterized Speex MIME
type e.g. accept="audio/x-speex;quality=[1-10];bitrate=...;capture=microphone"
instead of just being limited to accept="audio/*;capture=microphone"
which will likely lead to a pointless proliferation of incompatible

Who do I ask for the same thing in HTML5?
