From their web page:


The mission of the HTML Speech Incubator Group, part of the Incubator Activity, is to determine the feasibility of integrating speech technology in HTML5 in a way that leverages the capabilities of both speech and HTML (e.g., DOM) to provide a high-quality, browser-independent speech/multimodal experience while avoiding unnecessary standards fragmentation or overlap.

What is more interesting is is what is not included - i.e.: "Browser-level ASR (browser is listening)".

Not sure how different this would be from earlier attempts at adding speech to browsers, like Microsoft's SALT tags or Opera's XHTML+Voice  (see also this IBM tutorial).
