Read math more easily

SpeechStream excels at reading aloud math presented on screen in a variety of ways. Back in 2014, SpeechStream was first to market with reading aloud MathML presented with MathJax while visually highlighting each character of an equation.

Pronunciation Tuning

Need to change the way a word is pronounced? Using the Pronunciation Editor toolbar, content experts just select a word, click a button and alter the spelling in a dialog box field to adjust the pronunciation without changing the underlying HTML. Or, you can use SSML to affect the way a word is pronounced.
