Today, we’re launching something new…
We’ve enabled Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) support as part of our Ubi Portal Voice Prototyping tool for Alexa.
In a nutshell, it allows you to emphasize certain types of phrases, ensure proper pronunciation, add interjections (even more life-like sounding phrases), and play MP3s of a specific format and length.
The hope is that this will encourage early developers to create even more compelling prototypes of Alexa skills without even needing to code. Ultimately, we hope this will contribute to our goal of making interaction with technology more natural and easy.
