SSML 1.1 is now a W3C Recommendation

Dear www-voice,

I am pleased to announce that "Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML)
Version 1.1" was published as a W3C Recommendation on 7 September

SSML 1.1 provides control over voice selection as well as speech
characteristics such as pronunciation, volume, and pitch. SSML is part
of W3C's Speech Interface Framework [1] for building voice
applications, which also includes the widely deployed VoiceXML [2] and
the Pronunciation Lexicon [3] (for providing speech engines guidance
on proper pronunciation).

The specification is now available as follows.
