Balabolka uses different versions of the Microsoft Speech API (SAPI); it is possible to change the voice parameters, including speed and pitch. The user can apply a special list of substitutions to improve the quality of voice articulation. This feature is useful when you want to change the pronunciation of words. Pronunciation correction rules use VBScript syntax.
