Quick start

SSML - Amazon Alexa

Convert Speech Markdown to SSML for Amazon Alexa

const smd = require('speechmarkdown-js');

const markdown = `Sample [3s] speech [250ms] markdown`;
const options = {
    platform: 'amazon-alexa'
};

const speech = new smd.SpeechMarkdown();
const ssml = speech.toSSML(markdown, options);

The resulting SSML is:

<speak>
Sample <break time="3s"/> speech <break time="250ms"/> markdown
</speak>

SSML - Google Assistant

Convert Speech Markdown to SSML for Google Assistant

const smd = require('speechmarkdown-js');

const markdown = `Sample [3s] speech [250ms] markdown`;
const options = {
    platform: 'google-assistant'
};

const speech = new smd.SpeechMarkdown();
const ssml = speech.toSSML(markdown, options);

The resulting SSML is:

<speak>
Sample <break time="3s"/> speech <break time="250ms"/> markdown
</speak>

Plain Text

Convert Speech Markdown to Plain Text

const smd = require('speechmarkdown-js');

const markdown = `Sample [3s] speech [250ms] markdown`;
const options = {};

const speech = new smd.SpeechMarkdown();
const text = speech.toText(markdown, options);

The resulting text is:

Sample speech markdown

Options

You can pass options into the constructor:

const smd = require('speechmarkdown-js');

const markdown = `Sample [3s] speech [250ms] markdown`;
const options = {
    platform: 'amazon-alexa'
};

const speech = new smd.SpeechMarkdown(options);
const ssml = speech.toSSML(markdown);

Or in the methods toSSML and toText:

const smd = require('speechmarkdown-js');

const markdown = `Sample [3s] speech [250ms] markdown`;
const options = {
    platform: 'amazon-alexa'
};

const speech = new smd.SpeechMarkdown();
const ssml = speech.toSSML(markdown, options);

Available options are:

  • platform (string) - Determines the formatter to use to render SSML. Valid values are: amazon-alexa and google-assistant.

  • includeFormatterComment (boolean) - Adds an XML comment to the SSML output indicating the formatter used. Default is false.

  • includeSpeakTag (boolean) - Determines if the <speak> tag will be rendered in the SSML output. Default is true.

  • includeParagraphTag (boolean) - Determines if the <p> tag will be rendered in the SSML output. Default is false.
