Spell out words and phrases easily

The natural language speech system is great for reading regular text, but sometimes it’s important to spell out individual words or phrases instead of reading them. Until now, you had to use complex workarounds to make Video Puppet spell out phrases or symbols.

From today, you can just enclose a phrase between two back-ticks (`), and Video Puppet will spell it out. You can use this trick to read out an acronym or instruct students how to write a complex word:

The word Sacrilegious is spelled `Sacrilegious`.

This can be very useful for educational or instructional videos. Check out the video below for some nice examples:
