Auto-generated audio

Good day... Been playing with the text-to-speech function in SL...

Was wondering if there was any way of slowing down the cadence of the voices;  presently, they tend to fly along. Though the quality of the voices is v.g., the speed makes it sound a bit unhuman-like. Also the jumps from the end of one sentence to the next need to be longer.

Right now, I'm assuming that I'd have to edit the audio via SL's audio editor or a third-party editor...

Thanks for any advice!

Michael

Hi Michael, 

Thank you for sharing your point across. 

Having the ability to regulate the speed or rhythmic sequence as a feature would be a tremendous part of the product. 

Due to insistent demand, our product development team is underway in reviewing the requested feature enhancement and hopefully it could be rolled out soon on the next version releases. 

In lieu of this feature, if you want to insert brief pauses use punctuation, such as commas and semicolons within the text. For longer pauses, convert your text to speech, then open the clip in the built-in audio editor and insert silence where it's needed.

Thanks again for taking the time to talk to us! We always appreciate feedback and suggestions.
