How do I get the AI to emphasize the correct syllable?

Quotation marks let you shape the emphasis of your sentence.

When you place a word in quotation marks, the AI knows to pay particular attention to the chosen 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

With our
