Today, we are excited to announce a new phonation tag that you can use with Amazon Polly, an API-based Text-to-Speech (TTS) service. With the new phonation Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) tag, you can produce softer speech with any of the Amazon Polly voices. 

In addition to the new phonation tag, Amazon Polly also supports other SSML features, such as prosody, whispered voice, dynamic range compression, and vocal tract length – which allow you to further customize the voices to best suit your needs.

Visit the Amazon Polly documentation on SSML tags for more information, and try the new feature through the Amazon Polly console!
