  • Developer Workbench 2011


The W3C SSML default document sample generated when opening a new document in Developer Workbench does not speak when the playback button is pressed.


There are 2 possible problems that prevented the playback:

  • The end </speak> tag was truncated from the default document text.
  • SAPI 5.3+ SSML does not support the say-as 'letters' markup to spell the text.


The W3C default document SSML was updated in Developer Workbench 2011 build
