SABLE mark-up language

SABLE is XML-style markup language ([7]). The various tags of SABLE allow the modification of many properties of the speech output.
For example, the speech rate can be modified:
<RATE SPEED="+100%"> Wir koennen schnell sprechen </RATE>
The volume can be altered, too:
<VOLUME LEVEL="quiet"> Das ist leise </VOLUME>
For the complete tagset see [8].

You may synthesize a SABLE file as follows:
(tts "example.sable" 'sable)

Many SABLE tags are not yet working properly. Currently we are in the process of implementing these tags for German and English.
