The W3C has released the First Public Working Draft of Voice Extensible Markup Language (VoiceXML) 3.0. This is the next version of the VoiceXML language that reportedly will include a host of new features, including speaker authentication.
Although this is an early draft, according to the document:
By the middle of 2009 the group expects to have all existing functionality defined in detail, the new functionality stubbed out, and the VoiceXML 2.1 profile largely defined. By late-2009 the group expects to have all functionality defined and both profiles defined in detail.
I’ve got to find some time to go through this document — in addition to being a very interesting read, it might be kind of neat to provide input that might get incorporated into the standard by the W3C.
Guess I know what I’ll be doing for New Year’s Eve. 😉
