Alternatives to changing pitch

0

I am using the neural mode in Polly. The neural mode does not allow for change in pitch. The only alternative I see is to increase the rate. However, I have tried this, and it sounds very unnatural. In order to emphasize words, I decrease the rate slightly, and increase the volume slightly. A slightly higher change in pitch would certainly help.

Hi, as far as I know, there is no alternative to changing the pitch for voices in neural mode. I've relayed this as a feature request to our team.

As a hack-y workaround, and assuming that the voices in question are English, playing with the stress pattern of a multi-syllabic word via the phoneme tag may achieve the results you want, however this may not work for monosyllabic words.

Thanks! I've actually been doing this, and I'm getting pretty good at it. But it does take a lot of work.
