Description

The new text-to-speech (TTS) API in Windows 8.1 provides opportunities to create new app experiences with natural-sounding voices to engage users. In this talk, you’ll learn how to use the TTS API for the Windows Runtime to add voice to your app. We’ll show you how to: add basic TTS capabilities to read out text; enhance the voice with rhythm, stress, and intonation to sound more human; use bookmarks and markers to enhance control; and tailor your app with different voices and languages.
