Technical Summary

This document outlines the needs and requirements for a protocol to control 
distributed speech processing of audio streams.  By speech processing, this 
document specifically means automatic speech recognition (ASR), speaker 
recognition - which includes both speaker identification (SI) and speaker 
verification (SV) - and text-to-speech (TTS).  Other IETF protocols, such as 
SIP and RTSP, address rendezvous and control for generalized media streams. 
However, speech processing presents additional requirements that none of the 
extant IETF protocols address.

Working Group Summary
The SPEECHSC Working Group supported the advancement of the document.
Protocol Quality
This document was reviewed for the IESG by Jon Peterson.
