Hi, I'm a web developer, trying to make certain words be pronounced correctly by screen readers. I'm currently using aria-label but I know this has problems, i.e. for braille.

I was hoping to find an update on the pronunciation syntax.

From the Pronunciation Task Force Timeline:


> Decide Attribute model or Inline SSML by November 2020.

I read through the 10/16/2020 meeting notes here:


> reaching a conclusion today isn't practicable, but we have a lot of suggestions, contacts and approaches. We should pursue those and then re-assess later.

Is this the latest update? Is there a new target date?
