The service provides a hosted version of the provider's installed text-to-speech (TTS) conversion software. It generates spoken language from input text in a variety of languages using a selection of speaking voices. Requests can fine-tune aspects of the audio output such as pitch and pacing to adjust for specific needs.
API methods support either "simple speak" conversion of a basic text selection or "extended speak" conversion with modifications to default pitch, rate of speech, and pronunciation via SSML markup. Methods also support management of multiple lexicons and abbreviation sets to control text conversions for specific environments. Tags allow influence over emotional tone and vocal gestures.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
