How can I force a certain pronunciation of a word or name?

  • Updated

If you want to force a certain pronunciation, you can use SSML phoneme tags with our English V1 and Turbo V2 models. You can find out more about this in our guide to Prompting.  

Alternatively, a workaround is to find an alternative spelling and write a word more phonetically. You can employ various tricks such as capital letters, dashes, apostrophes, or even single quotation marks around a single letter or letters.

As an example, a word like "trapezii" could be spelt "trapezIi" to put more emphasis on the "ii" of the word.
