If you are wondering how to make pronunciation sound just right with Elai, just check the tips below:

1. How to add a longer pause between words when the sentence doesn't have the right rhythm.

Voice actors don’t read sentences exactly how they’re written. They add brief pauses in places where commas don’t exist, and they may pause to take a short breath. 

If you need to insert a pause in the audio, use the right mouse button where you need it. A pop-up menu appears so you can Cut, Copy and Paste the text, add Variables or put a Pause automatically as premium voices support SSML tags. 

Alternatively, you can also put pauses by utilizing commas and periods to achieve a natural sound:

  •  Commas

Commas add pauses in places where a voice actor would make a small, subtle pause. If you find the AI struggling to make a good prediction for adding pauses, insert commas in these places

  •  Periods

Periods create a pause as well as a downward inflection. They are best used to break a long sentence up into two pieces, allowing the AI to better predict which words to emphasize.

2. How can I get the AI to put more emphasis on a word or phrase?

Quotation marks let you shape the emphasis of your sentence. When you place a word or phrase in quotation marks (" "), the AI knows to pay particular attention to those words. 

3. The AI keeps emphasizing the wrong syllable. How do I fix that?

When you place a word or phrase in quotation marks, the AI knows to pay particular attention to those words. Try placing the syllable you’d like to have emphasized in quotation marks. 

For example: 

If you want the AI to say “PROduce,” as in vegetables, but it’s saying “proDUCE” instead, try entering “pro” duce

4. How do I get the right pronunciation?

Use the Phoneme feature to improve pronunciation. Find more information here: Phoneme guide.
