If you have an OzML script that uses <Speak> command, it is also possible to configure the Text to speech language in your script. The <Speak> command has a Language parameter that allows you to choose from different languages in which the text will be read out by the Text to speech engine. The following example code (Code 1) shows how to use it. In the Language parameter you need to use the short code format of the languages that can be found on the Microsoft webpage where you can download them. If a language has more voices, you can specify which one to be used. This can be set by using the Voice parameter of the Speak command. This can also be seen in the second Speak command in the following code.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Response> <Speak Language="en-UK"> Hello, this text will be read out in English language. </Speak> <Speak Language="pt-BR" Voice="Heloisa"> Olá, este texto será lido em Português. </Speak> </Response>
