pronucnciation control for TTS

joewalsh 7 years ago in SitePal Platinum updated by Gil Sideman 7 years ago 1

I need to precisely control pronunciation since I am building a language learning app. For instance, for "either" E ther vs. EYE ther.

Using the API or client side Javascript, can I send IPA characters or the Darpa phonemes? If not, is there a way of controlling pronunciation by using specific made up words like ee ack ?

Joe - 

You can send via the API any text, including meta commands, that is supported by our voices (that our voices know how to speak).  Our voices support SSML tags, but not Darpa or IPA phenomes. 

(I should mention that only engine 2 and 3 voices support SSML - engine 4 voices do not.)

That said - I will look consult and get back to you with more info if I have it.
