Ondoku recommended environment and recommended number of characters
Jan. 11, 2022
In order to use this service, we recommend the following environment. In addition, the recommendations for reading aloud are as follows.
Recommended number of reading characters
- Using SSML: less than 3000 characters
- Normal time: Less than 5000 characters
* On the input screen, a warning will be displayed if the number of characters exceeds 3000.
If the number of characters exceeds the recommended number of characters, such as 10,000 or 20,000 characters, it may not be possible to read aloud, but server errors are more likely to occur.
Even if you contact us, we will not be able to support you if an error occurs when reading with more than the recommended number of characters.
If you are reading a long sentence, please divide it into several parts and try to read it out loud.
If you want to combine separate MP3 files into one MP3 file, please use an MP3 combining service such as Audio Joiner .
Text with symbols may not be read aloud
Ondoku is a service that can read out characters .
If extra symbols are included, it may interfere with reading and may not be read aloud.
For example: & < > : ; " = etc.
In particular, symbols used in SSML tags are error prone.
Symbols that are not related to reading should be removed as much as possible.
If you want the symbols to be read aloud, please take measures such as replacing the symbols with katakana or hiragana.
Example: = equal
