What’s SSML


Alright, hey Hey Mark Phillips here with SimpliSpoken This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing. And so today we’re going to talk a little bit about a tool or a technique that allows us to basically instruct the smart speaker device or the voice assistant how to speak back to us. So this is called speech synthesis Markup Language. It’s an SSML for short. And basically, what you do is you sort of give you, you give the the voice of the smart speaker little coaching, a little guidance, basically a little little tip or trick on what you’d like it to do, whether that be a special sound effect or pause maybe putting a little bit of extra emphasis on something or you know, changing the the pace of the speech. So SSML allows us to, to give a little coaching basically on how how something should be spoken back, right. And so, in many cases, smart speakers will not sound very natural when you just have it blast through a block of text. So what you can do is you can coach it to pause and to seem a little bit more realistic. So that is the use of SSML for speech. And that brings us to the end of another quick SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash Briefing. So if you get some value out of this content, please do hop over to the skill store and give us a review helps increase our listenership. We appreciate it. We’ll talk with you guys again tomorrow.
