I believe that and represent the same subject matter, and should be merged.

VXML, I believe, is an abbreviation of Voice XML. It's probably clearer to merge into , so that a non expert can pick up on the keyword a little more easily.

The tag wiki for contains the following text:

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.

and are being used with the same meaning, and there isn't the need to use two tags to mean the same thing.

Right. And voicexml is the one that should remain; someone who's just getting started may not know that vxml is the accepted abbreviation. –  IVR Avenger May 8 '12 at 17:55

The reason this shouldn't be done is that many variants of VXML are out. Some companies use the convention of voiceXML, but some use vxml to differentiate between ccxml, grxml, etc.

So, both variants of the tag can coexist happily with no issues.

CCXML and GRXML are not the same as VXML. VoiceXML and VXML are the same thing, just spelled out, differently. Though an application can use all three languages, they're still separate languages that have not been sub-classed from each other. –  IVR Avenger Jan 25 '12 at 19:26
Wikipedia would like to disagree with you in part. I suggest you not get so heated about responses to your own questions. –  jcolebrand May 1 '12 at 16:34
