Talk:Using SSML for advanced text-to-speech on Windows Phone 8
Cadlg - Shortened URL used in last note
Note from the author: A shortened URL (bit.ly) was used in the last note because the target URL includes parentheses which are apparently not supported inside a Note template. Using shortened URLs in articles is not optimal. If anyone knows how to include the real URL inside the Note template, please update the article, or explain the solution here, so I can update it.

> If anyone knows how to include the real URL inside the Note template, please update the article, or explain the solution here, so I can update it.A bit of a pain I know. This is because mediawiki thinks you're defining a parameter if you use = inside any template. The solution, as documented in Template:Note is to replace the "=" character with its HTML equivalent

Hamishwillee - Seems fairly comprehensive
Sorry for taking so long to get to your article for review.
This is well written. It may miss a few topics like handling speech errors and events, but overall it is fairly comprehensive (and those weren't the focus anyway). I think it builds well on the DevCenter and other docs where were already fairly good by providing a simpler explanation, all gathered into one place. I was also pleased to see you did a good job of referencing the text you used.
In terms of "room for improvement", you have provided an example - is there any value in playing soundbytes from its output in each section? YOu might also reasonably provide direct links in each section to the related sections in the DevCenter docs(e.g. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh361684(v=office.14).aspx for the audio element).
Thank you very much for this. Whether or not it wins a prize, it and you are more than welcome on this wiki.

Cadlg - Thanks
I overlooked the solution for the problem with the Note template (and I thought the parentheses were the ones causing it).
I have edited the link, and added direct links for the SSML elements, as you suggested.
Thanks for your help, and thanks for your kind words, Hamish.-Carlos
