ReadAloud-510 Text to Speech handles punctuation and document structure appropriately
When Read Aloud is activated, there should be slight pauses after headings, list items etc., rather than reading as if it is one continuous section of text.
Read the text below using read aloud and listen for the pauses.
Text for testing read aloud
The above heading should not have run into this text as if it were one sentence. Now we have a regular sentence that includes a comma, so it should be spoken as two phrases. And a pause should have indicated that this is a separate sentence.
This is a new paragraph. Below is a list, which should be read as three separate groups:
- Red, green, blue
- One, two, three
- Alpha, bravo, charlie
End of text for testing read aloud.
Indicate Pass or Fail.
This test is in the Read Aloud book.
