    Presentation Overview

    An alphabet soup of markup languages has been developed to address requirements for voice and multi-modal user interfaces. Dialog languages such as PML, VoxML, SpeechML, TML, TalkML, VoiceXML, MobileXML, and SALT, and related technologies such as SSML, SRGS/GRXML, NLSML, CCXML, among others, have taken a variety of approaches to simplify application development and deployment. Ken will discuss:

    • What's the status of the voice and multi-modal standards?
    • Where are these standards going?
    • How do standards groups work?
    • Why do we really need standards?
    • Do standards help the industry or impede innovation?
    • Can we have standards at high speed?

    A brief historical look at how and why these languages developed and evolved will serve as a foundation for where the standards are now, and what the future may hold for the next-generation of voice and multi-modal user interface languages.
