voice inflection

jimson 5 years ago updated 5 years ago 3
Is there any way to get voice inflection to respond to punctuation? Say make something sound like a question rather than a flat statement when a question mark is used?
Under review
Hi Jimson - 

Some voices are more "punctuation responsive" than others - it depends on the "voice family" (also noted in the documentation as the "engine id")

I think engine #3 voices, such as Paul and Julie are better about inflecting the voice for a question mark, and introducing an appropriate pause for a comma etc.

Try it and let me know what you think.

You can also introduce precisely timed pauses by using SSML tags. These are documented in the API reference document (see appendix) or see examples of use here -

Shortly after this post I discovered the SSML feature.I will try that out\

Thanks
