Before converting your text to speech, the scripts are important that you should pay much attention. First, you need to avoid the spelling mistakes and how many times you spell “adn” instead of “and”. Remember that the speech to text machine will read all text exactly as it is. Sometimes the characters may get corrupted when your text goes from machine to machine. Those characters like * or @ can also be read as (asterisk) and (at).
