Embedded Commands

Commands to the synthesizer may be embedded in the input text and are enclosed in double braces {{.....}}. For example, you could use the rate and pitch commands to create emphasis on the last part of "I thought I told you to never play with matches!":

"{{rate 150; pitch 100}}I thought I told you to {{rate 90; pitch 130}}never play with matches."

Notice that multiple commands may be used within braces when they are separated by a semi-colon.
