RE: Question: Implementation approaches of W3C multimodal architecture?


the W3C MMI working group has recently published a note which describes
one possible implementation of the MMI framework: The system described in this note and
some similar variants have already been implemented by members of the
working group.

Note that a distributed configuration has been used in this case. The
focus here was to reuse existing components, like HTML browsers and
VoiceXML interpreters, to build such a system.

As for other groups working on multimodal archictectures I'm aware of
activities of the OMA (OpenMobileAlliance) in the past under the MMMD
(Multimodal Multi-device) work item:

Subject: Question: Implementation approaches of W3C multimodal

Dear W3C mmi group!

As a PHD student which works in the area of multimodal interfaces I am
interested in the work of the W3C group regarding the multimodal

As far as I can see the last working draft for multimodal architecture
and interfaces was published on April, 14th, 2008. 

Even if it is only a draft - are there any known implementation
approaches with this architecture as a basis? (The final version will be
out on end of 2008, right?) Any pointers to research projects (academic
or industry) would be helpful.

Aside the W3C approach - are there any other groups who want to define
such a useful architecture for multimodal frameworks?

kind regards,
Ertl Dominik
