Text-to-Speech too fast

I slowed the reading of words as much as possible. I would like the time between words to be longer, I have tried more space between words, it does not work Do you have an idea?
Thanks for reading

See HERE for some ideas

Intersperse them with commas, at least a few dozen per word.

I haven’t tried this but you could make a list of the words, then feed one word at a time to text-to-speech via a Clock Timer Block. You could even have a spinner on the App GUI to allow the User to vary the speed.

Have you tried what the documentation suggests?


The documentation indicates:

Sets the Pitch for TextToSpeech The values should be between 0 and 2 where lower values lower the tone of synthesized voice and greater values raise it.


Result property getter method.


Sets the SpeechRate for TextToSpeech. The values should be between 0 and 2 where lower values slow down the pitch and greater values accelerate it.

but the words for SpeechRate are incorrect. … lower values slow down the rate and greater values accelerate. Try 0.8 and tell us what happens.

hello, i already tried the commas, more space, i found no change. thanks anyway for the ideas :slight_smile:
I did not think working with a clock, I will see how to do it.
how to detect word by word in a label or a spinner?
to answer SteveJG that is the time between each word that I try to lengthen, not the voice. thank you

Try the attached Project :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

hello, I’m looking to make a list of 4 words continuous (in green), a list of 4 individual words (in blue), I can’t see the mechanism. Thank you for your help

Use the “list from csv row text” block from the Lists Palette


I can’t see what you can’t see? It looks like you have already achieved what you require?
