Special Symbols

Copper Contributor

Hey, 
Is there a way to make symbols like "µ" and things like "nm" (nanometers) work, without having them written out as text?

Hi @LeonhardBleicher ,

Custom Speech may be able to let you do that. You would need training text that has the terms like "nm" in it and also provide a pronunciation file that looks something like:
nm<tab>nanometer

...
Not 100% sure if that also works for "µ" as it is a special character.

See docs here: Custom Speech overview - Speech service - Azure Cognitive Services | Microsoft Docs

Or if you are talking about Text To Speech you can use SSML to provide the pronunciation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/speech-service/speech-synthesis-markup?tab...
