ssml glyphs

This does not appear to work:

Code: Select all
./swift '<say-as interpret-as="characters" format="glyphs">Hello</say-as>'

I'm looking for support for - "The purpose is to render the enclosed text in such a manner that it is unambiguously clear to the listener what the written text (glyphs) look like."

We're currently using Callie-8khz 4.1.4, but I tried Allison 4.2.1 and it doesn't seem to work either.

Am I missing something obvious? Is there a different way to get the desired behavior?

I'm sorry to report that we do not yet support that aspect of the say-as tag. I've added the request to our queue of features to add in upcoming releases.

The closest solution for now would be to use: <say-as type='spell-out'> which would be close but would not point out capital letters.

Thanks. That may be workable if we restrict ourselves to letters of one case.

Is there documentation for what parts of SSML you support and what additional elements/attributes you've added? I've seen this page already, but, while useful, it's not complete.

The closest thing we have available is a list of known issues. Here is our windows entry in the support page, which contains an SSML section: ... pe=windows

I'll add the "say-as interpret-as glyph" problem to the list here soon. Thanks for pointing this out to us.
