Text Speaker 3.32

Insert Pitch Change

One of the most important ways to make speech sound natural is to emphasize it correctly.  Proper emphasis can also change the meaning of a sentence.  For instance, these two sentences mean different things:

We CAN do it!


WE can do it!

In Text Speaker, emphasis is shown by changing the pitch of the word or the phrase.

To emphasize a word or a phrase, select it and click Edit >> Change Pitch for Selected Word / Phrase.

The text is now surrounded by <pitch absmiddle=" N "> and <pitch absmiddle=" M "> tags.  Where, N represents the pitch change selected by user using Insert Pitch dialog and M represents the value of pitch previously selected by user on Voice bar.

Following is the example for showing the document contianing Pitch change tags:
