5th International Conference on Spoken Language Processing
Currently, speech synthesizers are controlled by a multitude of proprietary tag sets. These tag sets vary substantially across synthesizers and are an inhibitor to the adoption of speech synthesis technology by developers. SABLE is an XML/SGML-based markup scheme for text-to-speech synthesis, developed to address the need for a common TTS control paradigm. This paper presents an overview of the SABLE v0.2 specification, and provides links to websites with further information on SABLE.
