The Multimodal Interaction Working Group has published two Group Notes:
- Discovery & Registration of Multimodal Modality Components: This document is addressed to people who want to develop Modality Components for Multimodal Applications distributed over a local network or “in the cloud”. With this goal, in a multimodal system implemented according to the Multimodal Architecture Specification, over a network, to configure the technical conditions needed for the interaction, the system must discover and register its Modality Components in order to monitor and preserve the overall state of the distributed elements. Therefore, Modality Components can be composed with automation mechanisms in order to adapt the Application to the state of the surrounding environment.
- EMMA: Extensible MultiModal Annotation markup language Version 2.0: The W3C Multimodal Interaction Working Group aims to develop specifications to enable access to the Web using multimodal interaction. This document is part of a set of specifications for multimodal systems, and provides details of an XML markup language for containing and annotating the interpretation of user input and production of system output.
