Text to speech prounciation

Feb 10, 2022

I am using built-in text-to-speech tools in Storyline, and there is a vocabulary "Live event" in our narration. I've tried all English characters and they all pronounce "live" as [liv] (v.) not [līv] (adj.). 

I think this would be more like a language question but it really bother me as a non-English native speaker.

Any suggestions about how to make it pronounce [līv] (adj.)? Thanks.

Have you tried typing the word in a phonetic way? 

I was having a similar issue using text to speech and to get a particular word to sound correct I had to type another word to get the sound of the word I wanted.  Also sometimes adding spaces can help the audio sound better. 

It was a bit of trial and error but I did get it right in the end.
