    How do I change the phonetics in the TTS in Captivate 7?

    rscharfer Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I have successfully used vtml tags to add some pauses and slow down the TTS produced by Captivate.  I haven't been able to change the phonetics, however.. .Any tips on how to do this?  is there a phoneme alphabet that works better than another in Captivate?  I have tried "alphabet="ipa" and alphabet="x-CMU" and neither of them had any effect.

       

       

      Thanks for any help?

          You can use the Captivate dictionary for this purpose.

           

          Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe Captivate Voices 7\VT\<Voice Artist>\M16\bin, and launch UserDicEng_<Voice Artist>.exe.

           

          In the dictionary, click File Open and select userdict_eng from the C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe Captivate Voices 7\VT\<Voice Artist>\M16\data-common\userdict folder.

           

          Click Add Word and select the Pronunciation Symbol radio button below the Target field. You will now see the pronunciation symbols which you can use.

           

          Note: Due to a bug in NeoSpeech 64bit installer files, you must install the 32-bit NeoSpeech voices even if you are on a 64-bit system.
