"Extending the Web to voice-based devices reached a milestone Monday when the World Wide Web Consortium accepted version 1.0 of the Voice Extensible Markup Language specification."
"Based on the W3C's industry-standard XML, the VoiceXML 1.0 specification provides an intelligent API to speech and telephony applications for developers, service providers and equipment manufacturers."
"VoiceXML 1.0 is based on years of research and development at AT&T Corp., IBM, Lucent Technologies Inc. and Motorola Inc. along with comments from VoiceXML Forum supporters. Since the release of VoiceXML 1.0 in March, the forum has nearly doubled its membership to more than 150 companies."
