Say-as tags provide contextual hints to the TTS engine about how the text should be pronounced. This element resolves ambiguities regarding the meaning of contained text. The type attribute specifies the contextual hint. The interpret-as attribute indicates the content type of the contained text construct (e.g. number, date, time, currency). This attribute is redundant, however, as the say-as tag types can do this as well. The format attribute gives hints on the precise formatting of the contained text for content types that may have ambiguous formats (e.g. cardinal, ordinal, and digits (for number) and dmy, md, my, and ym (for date)). This attribute is also redundant, as the <say-as> tag types can do this as well.
