Yeah fair enough, I was trying simple text sentences. I was unsure in what format it would want a prosody pitch change, Amazon's TTS does percentages, Google does stages, so I tried both..
So say with a Google voice I'd try...<prosody pitch="+20%">Hello there</prosody> or <prosody pitch="+2st">Hello there</prosody>. In both cases that would cause the voice to not speak those words, if I did normal words around it.
Say. Hello there, <prosody pitch="+20%">how are you?</prosody>, that's good.
The voice refuses to say any of this text. This is the same either if I write the SSML via edit text or if I use symbols and make edit speech transform it into those.
AH! Just edited this, didn't think to test them but there are the voices which require internet connection. These do the tags correctly and weirdly enough without changing anything, now the offline ones at least try to pronounce the words within the tags though it has no effect, if the wifi is on...so odd.
It might be no offline voices can handle them right, or at least none I've found.
What happens with the online voices, do they send the text elsewhere then return it?
