Support SSML - it is widely used in voice apps to enhance output and the user experience.
The SSML spec is a W3C standard (see https://www.w3.org/TR/speech-synthesis11/)and quite comprehensive. Incrementally adding SSML features makes sense.
Note that Alexa, Google and Cortana support SSML
I suggest the following tags have high priority
<audio> = embed audio clips. support for background audio nice addition - see Google's implementation of the <par>, <seq> and <media> tags
<p> <s> <break> = break elements
<say-as> = control how to say an element
<prosody> = rate, pitch and volume
<emphasis> = emphasize
<lang> = language
<sub> = substitute
<phoneme> - Support IPA and X-Sampa
<voice> - Change voice
Yes Bixby speaks responses. By default the dialog template text is spoken but you can add a "speech" key to template to have spoken output be different than the template text.
See https://bixbydevelopers.com/dev/docs/dev-guide/developers/refining-dialog.intro-dialog for more info on dialog and please use our StackOverflow community - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/bixby if you have further questions or need additional info.
I have a question - if Bixby is able to speak a response, is it also able to speak a response in a different language without chnging Bixby language nor system language? If so, could you please provide me with some examples of capsules that do it for me to be able to inset that feature in my own capsule?
I would be grateful :)
The ability to speak in a different language/use a different voice for that language is the first SSML feature we have enabled - see https://bixbydevelopers.com/dev/docs/reference/type/template.speech
