Help using Text to Speech

Choose from the following topics:



Text to Speech Format

Pauses
It is important you use commas in your text to create pauses before important words, eg: "This is an, urgent message, from John Smith".

Message Repeat
Your message will be automatically repeated. You do not have to retype your text for repetition.

Telephone Numbers
Telephone numbers need to be entered with a space between the numbers and commas after the area codes eg. 0 2, 9 8 7 6, 5 4 3 2 .

Example One Way Message
A sample message would look like:

    This is an urgent message from, John Smith, please call 1 8 0 0, 7 9 7, 7 3 7 . That number again is 1 8 0 0, 7 9 7, 7 3 7 .

Example Two Way Message
A sample two way message would look like:

    Dear volunteer...This is the State Fire Fighters Brigade. We urgently require your help as we have an emergency in your area. Please press 1 to be immediately connected to our headquarters, or press 2 if you are not available to assist us at this point of time. If you did not listen to this mesage live, could you please call us A S A P at phone 9 9 0 4, 8 8 0 8. Again that number is 9 9 0 4, 8 8 0 8. Thank you.
Don't forget to include your phone number to call in case the user is listening to a recorded voicemail of your message.
