First Draft of VoiceXML 3.0 Released

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. 😉
