What is the ResponsiveVoice Agent?
The ResponsiveVoice Agent is a package that includes a lot of out-of-the-box TTS functionality.
Is it for me?
If you’re not a programmer (or don’t want to bother with programming), or the WordPress plugin doesn’t offer you the functionality you need, the ResponsiveVoice Agent is for you.
How do I install it?
When you have logged in, you’ll be in the Agent dashboard.
There are now four steps to set up the ResponsiveVoice Agent to suit you:
- Select the features you’d like to use, and fill them out.
- In Settings menu enter your email address, your website, and the voice you’d like to use.
- In Embed menu tap the button to generate a unique code for your website.
Now all that’s left is to follow the instructions above – open your favourite text editor and add the above code to the page you want the Voice Agent to work in, right before the
tag at the end. The Agent will automatically load in the page you modified, with the functionality you selected.
How do I use the ResponsiveVoice Agent?
The installation is all there is to it – the Agent was built to automate all functionality, so that anybody could add TTS functionality to their website.
What license do I need?
The ResponsiveVoice Agent has two licenses available: the Agent Free, which can only be used in non-commercial websites and has a limited featureset, and the Agent Pro, which is a subscription service, but offers a number of features not present in the free version, including (but not limited to):
- Use in commercial websites
- Accessibility: spoken tab and paragraph page navigation.
- Exit page/inactivity messages
- Secured connection through SSL/TLS
You can find more details on the Pricing page.
The ResponsiveVoice Agent is not picking up everything in the page!
Since the Agent is completely automated, it is less flexible than an ad-hoc solution developed with the API. It relies on the HTML structure of the page to see what is a link, what is a paragraph, etc.
