Reading Poems - Line Feeds Pause?

Postby J-Mac » Tue May 05, 2009 5:52 pm

When I have TextAloud read a poem - or any text passage that often ends lines without any punctuation similar to poetry - there is no indicator for TextAloud to insert a pause at each line feed/break. So naturally the lines are read as if they run together as one long sentence.

Is there anyway to get TextAloud to recognize a line feed so that it pauses as it would with a comma?

Thanks!

D.,

That works perfectly! And doesn't Audrey sound great when she reads with those pauses now?!

Thank you very much for that link.
