Scope of the Workshop --------------------- The scope of this Workshop is restricted in order to make the best use of participants' time. In general, discussion at the Workshop and in the position papers should stay focused on the Workshop goal: identify and prioritize requirements for extensions and additions to SSML that will improve the use of SSML for rendering non-English languages including (but not limited to) Arabic, Hebrew and the Indian languages Telugu, Hindi, Bengali, Punjabi, Gujarthi and Urdu. Descriptions of new requirements with usage scenarios and clear explanations of the problems to be solved is of top priority for the Workshop, while examples of SSML syntax extensions is secondary priority.
