formats to be used for the EVRC wideband codec (EVRC-WB) and updates the
media type registrations for EVRC-B codec (RFC 4788). Several media type
registrations are included for EVRC-WB RTP payload formats. In addition, a
file format is specified for transport of EVRC-WB speech data in storage
mode applications such as e-mail.
