Edit Gap Analysis and Use case document <https://raw.githack.com/w3c/pronunciation/merge-doc/gap-analysis_and_use-case/index.html>

Irfan: Two documents merged. There is repeated information throughout. Paul also volunteered and Irfan is working on it next week.

Paul: Had one edit and pull request made.

Irfan: Will continue working on the edit and remain on-track to complete by end of February (2/29/2020) (First Public Working Draft).

Review User Scenarios document <https://w3c.github.io/pronunciation/user-scenarios/>

Irfan: Do not see any updates required for this document.

<janina> apropos nothing but calendar: https://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofBritain/Give-us-our-eleven-days/

Paul: Will review today.

Edit explainer DRAFT document

Irfan: As per last meeting, draft added. We will move group to Web Platform Working Group

First public draft need to be published here (in PTF).

<paul_grenier> My edits to https://github.com/w3c/pronunciation/tree/merge-doc have been merged (1 hour ago)

<irfan> https://demos.learnosity.com/partners/texthelp.php

<JF> Texthelp's SpeechStream product

Standards approach presented , adopted by Text Help producing Speech Stream (adopting standards proposed by PTF)

Irfan: awaiting preview on Friday by Steve from Texthelp.
... Version 2.1.7 of Speechstream implements the new variants, same approach presented for SSML by PTF.

Sam: correction - Peter, not Steve, from Texthelp.

Janina: Explainer doc is not normative. The only document moving is the actual technical specification.
... that is the document with RF 21.19 language.

<paul_grenier> https://github.com/schemaorg/schemaorg/pull/2352

Paul: XML schema.org - they have published pronounceable text. Text Pronunciation - link provided:
... Schema approach is embedding SSML into JSON.

John: Schema allows multiple ways to implement taxonomy. Schema-org is tech-agnostic.

Paul: will update schema.

Irfan: We don't need to create a new example in the Explainer - or do we need to address every approach within Schema.org?

John: As long as we can provide one working example (not just a POC) should be sufficient.
... Can outreach to colleagues familiar with schema.org and establish connection with schema group.

Irfan: will also discuss with Mark (re: schema.org)

Other Business including emails to group chair

Irfan: Meeting in January (Mark attending).

Janina: Next Wednesday (15th) on APA call, Leonie Watson will announce moving Pronunciation working draft.
