Original article: CeVIO AI ユーザーズガイド ┃ セリフの入力と編集

Input Line

Click to select a row, then click on the row again to enter the text input state.

After entering a line in the input state, press Enter to submit.

You can also use the keyboard alone. Press Enter or Down to move to the next line; press Up to move to the previous line; press F2 to enter in the selected row.

(Text can be entered directly without pressing F2 in non-input states.)

The lines of the Japanese Voice can use natural sentences in full-width hiragana/katakana/kanji.

The lines in the English Voice can use English in half-width letters and numbers.

The text limit for each line is 200 for the Japanese Voice and 500 for the English Voice.

Tips for Japanese lines input

Pronunciation is determined by the entire sentence of a line. The question mark (?, 疑問符) or exclamation mark (!, 感嘆符) at the end of a sentence is also added to the judgment of pronunciation.

Long texts without commas (、, 読点) and sentences that were originally one sentence but are divided into multiple lines cannot be pronounced correctly.

In sentences like "こんにちは。○○さん。", the period (。, 句点) in the middle will be replaced with a comma.

Even if the pronunciation is the same, you can find the pronunciation you want by changing it to homophones, hiragana or katakana.

You can use the Word Registration function to register the correct pronunciation of the names of people or places that are easy to be mispronounced.

Insert Ruby Brackets

When inputting a line, the "Insert Ruby Brackets" in the right-click menu can insert a reading-specified brackets in this position.

  • For Japanese Voice, 《》 is inserted at the cursor position.

    If text is selected, an additional | will be inserted to indicate the start of reading specification.

  • For English Voice, [] is inserted at the end of the word at the cursor position.

insert ruby brackets

Japanese ruby input (reading specification)

Specify the reading by writing hiragana/katakana in the 《》.

(Example) 今朝|四月一日《わたぬき》さんに会った。 * | indicates the object to be specified reading.

(Example) こんにちは、四月一日《わたぬき》さん。  * When | is omitted, the reading specification will be assumed to start from the beginning. 1

Like Word Registration, you can also use ' in 《》 to devoice the vowel.

English ruby input (phonetic symbol specification)

Enter phonetic symbols in the [] following a word to specify the pronunciation.

Use | to separate syllables; use , to separate phonemes within a syllable.

The vowel should be followed by a number indicating stress (0 if omitted).

0: no stress 1: primary stress 2: secondary stress

(Example) Sasara[s,ah1|s,ah0|r,ah0]

(Example) Ando[ah1,n|d,ow0]
