DIN SPEC 2343 is an initiative to standardize the API specifications of natural language processing (NLP) technologies. The consortium consisted of 12 industry partners and launched in June 2019. The members concluded with the recommendation of a specification proposal in April 2020.
"This document specifies a format with defined parameters for the transfer of speech-based data between different AI ecosystems. This is intended to ensure interoperability of speech-based applications for industry users, open source communities, and consumers, enable verification and traceability of data from speech-based applications, and enable data access and privacy. The format and the parameters describe on the one hand the transmitted data, on the other hand the necessary conditions for the interfaces of the ecosystems. This document does not describe the recognition and analysis of data within speech-based applications."
