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 libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
