These new tags will be employed by way of the skills’ system, and they cover a wide selection of responses, which were not available in the app script previously. That means the app developers will now be able to make Alexa’s speech patterns more correctly. So Amazon’s voice assistant could have the power to whisper, bleep out curse words and even change the pace and pitch of her voice.
As of now, we don’t know the way Alexa will sound like when it tells, change speech sound or emphasizes a word. Admittedly, Amazon will give us some idea at a webinar that is registered to take place on May 18.
Recently, Google’s AI-powered voice assistant acquired a new feature, which is the power to find instructions. Now, Amazon is also adding new points to its speech assistant Alexa. Up till now, she spoke in a robotic, monotonous voice but the firm is all set to change that.
The 5 new speech markups will soon be available to developers in the UK, Germany, and the US. The company believes that it will allow Alexa to provide an “extra-natural voice experience.” Whispers will make Alexa’s voice sound softer to ears. However, expletive beeps will let her curse when you say something unhealthy to her.
To make Alexa’s voice more human-like, it announced launched 5 new Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) compacts, which the developers can use while creating apps for Alexa.
