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.
