This release adds support for SSML and allows to specify new vendor-specific parameters.

The detailed list of changes introduced in this release follows.
New Features
  • Added support for SSML. A subset of SSML is now supported by the Yandex service.
  • Made service URI configurable mostly to allow to specify not only the address but also the port number of the service, which is required when UniMRCP server is behind TMG HTTP proxy.
  • Allow the attributes 'folder-id' and 'emotion' be specified via vendor-specific parameters. See section 5.7 in the Usage Guide.
Fixed Problems
  • None.
Configuration Parameters
  • Added a new attribute 'bypass-ssml' to the element 'synth-settings'.
  • Added a new attribute 'normalize-ssml' to the element 'synth-settings'.
  • Added a new attribute 'service-uri' to the element 'synth-settings', which defaults to 'https://tts.api.cloud.yandex.net/speech/v1/tts:synthesize' and can also be set to 'https://tts.api.cloud.yandex.net/speech/v1/tts:synthesize:443'.
  • Updated the Usage Guide to reflect the changes introduced in this release.
