What Is SSML and How Is It Used?
SSML stands for Speech Synthesis Markup Language. Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) is an XML-based markup language for speech synthesis applications. SSML is often embedded in VoiceXML scripts to drive interactive telephony systems. However, it also may be used for creating text-to-speech audio books, chatbot voices, video, voice synthesis for podcasting, and numerous other speech-type uses.
Where ever audio applications can be used, SSML, along with an SSML processor, can be used to generate a human-like speech audio. In fact, there are some experts that say SSML may someday replace expensive voice-over services. Voice over services may not be cost effective for audio applications. SSML allows the speech developer to type text, add SSML tags, and produce the audio files...with no re-recording required!
What is an SSML processor?
The processor is a text-to-speech system (synthesis processor) that supports SSML, is responsible for rendering plain text into spoken (audio) output, and for using the information contained in the text to be rendered into audio as intended by the author.
Our parent company, WP Global Syndicate LLC, is the developer of an outstanding SSML processor for personal or corporate training, as well as professional purposes. The processor is used as an editor, where SSML tags are added to plain text to produce an MP3 audio output. The combined text/SSML tagged file is sent to an Amazon audio services system (lambda) where the MP3 audio file is produced.
Our SSML processor and it's features cannot be seen anywhere else in the world, especially when coupled with our exclusive SSML training videos. No company in the world provides this type of comprehensive SSML training.
