Re: Value-add of PLS/SSML
As an aside, Orange has released a Perl script to check compliance of a Pronunciation Lexicon Specification (PLS) document to the W3C recommendation. From the news release from w3c mailing list:
France Telecom, Orange Labs, is happy to contribute to the PLS 1.0 Candidate Recommendation and to support the activities of the W3C Voice Browser working group by submitting the following PLS 1.0 Implementation Report.
To assist in the wider use of this W3C recommendation, France Telecom Orange Labs has released an implementation of PLS 1.0 under the Gnu General Public License version 3. This Implementation Report is based on that implementation, which takes the form of a PERL module and which is publicly available from http://www.orange.com/en_EN/innovation/patents_licensing/Software/PLS.html.
