Interpreting dates in multiple languages

Postby seantobin » Wed Apr 15, 2009 11:29 am

I'm having some difficulty in using the say-as date style to read a particular date. An example of what I'm attempting is:
Code: Select all
<say-as type='date' format='mdy'>1/2/2009</say-as>

In english-language voices, this gets interpreted as "January 2nd, 2009". However in spanish-language voices it is interpreted as (the spanish equivalent of) "February 1st, 2009". This is due to the native language difference in writing dates.

So, it appears that the format property of the date type is being ignored. Is there another way to accomplish this task, or is this something that I should be building into my app?
