AISpeech is the API behind a Chinese language and pronunciation learning website, AIChinese. You may know that Chinese is a tonal language. Where tones and inflection are used in English to convey emotion or differentiate between a declarative statement and a question, in tonal languages like Chinese, different tones on the same syllable can be altogether different words.
