How to use tags to adjust Pepper’s intonation

Pepper Voice

This table represents the values  to set in the tag of the table it’s used to set Pepper’s voice:

tag value
Voice height \ Vct = 135 \ 50 to 200
Voice speed \ Rspd = 110 \ 50 to 400
Weight \ Pau = 1000 \ 1000/1 second
Voice volume \ Vol = 50 \ 0 to 100

The default settings makes quite hard to to listen to long sentences and the voice height is a bit too low, so when speaking quite a bit, the speed is around 90 or 100 and the height of the voice depends on the words. Normally I am using about 170 lines when I am happy with about 145 or when my tension is rising.

You may try setting the intonation only by the height of the voice, but I think that it will not work as you are expecting because words will be chopped when you set the voice height setting to shred words.
