  5. Overview • VoiceXML is designed for creating audio dialogs that feature synthesized speech, digitized audio, recognition of spoken and DTMF key input, recording of spoken input, telephony, and mixed initiative conversations. • Its major goal is to bring the advantages of Web-baseddevelopment and content delivery to interactive voice response applications. ~World Wide Web Consortium
