Re: [Test Reliability] Minutes of Test Reliability meeting of 17 May 2022

Hello Test Reliability Sub-Group,

Thank you for sharing your most recent meeting minutes. Upon review of the
proposed "Pronunciation" work, I wonder aloud if the naming there is

Will this requirement (for example) reference the pronunciation of
individual words or phrases - the use-cases
<> that the current
Task Force <> of
the Accessible
Platform Architectures Working Group is working on, which is a subset of Speech
Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) <>?
The goal of that group is to ensure the proper pronunciation of individual
words, which I do not suspect is the larger goal you are working towards,
but it is not clear at this time as you are just starting to work on the
draft document

Nonetheless, if the goal of this effort is not the same as the work being
done by the Pronunciation Task Force, might it not be worth considering a
name change for this effort? Based on my watching this activity from a
distance, is not the current goal more around ensuring proper
language packs [sic] are loaded for TTS engines? Might that not then be
considered "Language Accuracy" (TTS Accuracy?) as opposed to
"Pronunciation"? (Just trying to avoid a term-of-art collision/confusion
down the road).

My unsolicited $0.02 worth.
