.Net Core + AWS Polly

Common words are sometimes stylized with numbers taking the place of letters, as with “g3t sm4rt” (get smart). Humans can read these words correctly. However, a Text-to-Speech (TTS) engine reads the text literally, pronouncing the name exactly as it is spelled. This is where you can leverage lexicons to customize the synthesized speech by using Amazon Polly. In this example, you can specify an alias (get smart) for the word “g3t sm4rt” in the lexicon.

Your text might include an acronym, such as W3C. You can use a lexicon to define an alias for the word W3C so that it is read in the full, expanded form (World Wide Web Consortium).
