In the Japanese version, the following can be used in the TALK command, much the same way as MML commands:
N1510 = C # 3
N1559 = D3
N1626 = D # 3
N1686 = E3
N1745 = F3
N1792 = F # 3
N1858 = G3
N1916 = G # 3
N1971 = A3
N2031 = A # 3
N2093 = B3
N2137 = C4
|@T||Speech speed||"T0" to "T1000"|
|@V||Volume||"V0" to "V80"|
S0: Young man
"Normal" functions for speech follow.
Kana characters: Pronounces the character. ' : Accent. / : Accent separate. | : Phrase separate. _ : Pause. . : End of a sentence. ? : End of a sentence (question). ! : End of a sentence (surprise). % : Disabling before a vowel.
This command is not in SmileBasic V1.
In the Japanese release of SmileBasic V2,
TALK takes between one and nine string parameters (inclusive). The system 'speaks' the string(s) (one after another) on an audio channel using a speech synthesizer. In the North American release, the command does nothing.
TALK "text to be spoken"
In Version 3, TALK only takes one parameter: the text to be spoken. Many of the intonation features have been removed.
