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.
