W3C releases Voice Browser Call
Control: CCXML Version 1.0
document describes CCXML, or the Call Control eXtensible
Markup Language. CCXML is designed to provide telephony
call control support for VoiceXML or other dialog systems.
CCXML has been designed to complement and integrate
with a VoiceXML system. Because of this you will find
many references to VoiceXML's capabilities and limitations.
You will also find details on how VoiceXML and CCXML
can be integrated. However it should be noted that the
two languages are separate and are not required in an
implementation of either language. For example CCXML
could be integrated with a more traditional IVR system
and VoiceXML could be integrated with some other call

receives XHTML+Voice submission from IBM, Motorola and
W3C recently announced receipt of the XHTML+Voice submission
from IBM, Motorola and Opera Software. This submission
describes a means to modularize VoiceXML 2.0 and outlines
how these modules can be combined with XHTML for multimodal
interaction, where users can interact with web pages
using a combination of visual and aural interaction.
The submission includes voice modules that support speech
synthesis, speech dialogs, command and control, speech
grammars, and the ability to attach Voice handlers for
responding to specific DOM events, thereby re-using
the event model familiar to web developers. Voice interaction
features are integrated directly with XHTML and CSS,
and can consequently be used directly within XHTML content.
