What tags can I use from the SAPI?

I noticed that <silence msec="500"/> doesn't work, so I have to use the <break time='500ms' />; but I'm sure this will break in the future.

Here is the section of our support web site that relates to issues under Windows, including SAPI support. ... pe=windows

It addresses in some detail SAPI tag support and its interaction with SSML support. Information about SSML support may be found on this page: ... &type=ssml

Linux user; didn't think to look at windows problems.

I think my issue is, I don't know which to use; SSML or SAPI; it looks like SSML. I don't want to break my web pages; nor do I want to maintain two sets of files; one for the web and one for the speech.

My question should have been; are these commands compatible with other technologies or are they proprietary?

SSML is a W3c standard. See:


So embedding SSML tags into your context really has nothing to do with Cepstral per se.

Given the myriad ways one can develop a web page, you might need to experiment a bit, or read more than I have, to find out what SSML tags might do to your delivery mechanism.
