Audio Vocabulary

It is difficult for a browser to extract semantic information about an audio recording described on a web page. Metadata such as speaker, musician, publisher, label, title of the work, release date, download link, related image artwork and tags provide relevant context for the audio recording, but are currently (2008) inaccessible to computers. In order to enable and encourage the sharing, distribution, syndication, and aggregation of audio content, the authors propose the Audio RDF vocabulary, an open standard for distributed audio metadata. The authors have researched both numerous examples in the wild and earlier attempts at audio metadata formats, and have designed the Audio RDF Vocabulary around a simple minimal schema for audio content. Feedback is encouraged and open participation is desired from all that are interested in contributing to the open exchange of audio metadata on the Internet.
