Speech Applications Language Tags Forum (SALT Forum)
Overview: The Speech Application Language Tags (SALT) Forum was formed in 2001 to develop a royalty-free, platform-independent standard that provided multimodal and telephony-enabled access to information, applications, and Web services from PCs, telephones, tablet PCs, and wireless personal digital assistants (PDAs). Speech Application Language Tags are intended to extend existing mark-up languages such as HTML, XHTML, and XML. Multimodal access is intended to enable data input using speech, a keyboard, keypad, mouse and/or stylus, and to produce data as synthesized speech, audio, plain text, motion video, and/or graphics. SALT fell into disuse due to competitor VoiceXML, which was supported by Microsoft and other companies.
