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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
