Emphasizing the correct syllable

Use quotation marks or a Respelling to help shape the emphasis of a word.

Using quotation marks

When you place a word in quotation marks, the AI pays particular attention to that word or phrase. You can try placing the syllable you’d like to have emphasized in quotation marks. 

If you want the AI to say “PROduce,” as in vegetables, but it’s saying “proDUCE” instead, try entering “pro”duce

Using a Respelling

With our Respellings tool, you can now give the AI specific cues to help shape the way all avatars say a word, making pronunciation more predictable as you create with different voices.

Produce or Produce?
If you want the AI to say “PROduce,” as in vegetables, more consistently across avatars.

With a Respelling, you can enter it as ::PROH-doos::


Record or Record?

For this homograph, you can try a Respelling to get the AI to pronounce it correctly.

As a noun,  ::REK-erd:: 

As a verb,   ::re-CORD::
