About using SSML with the Text To Speech service

I want to use Azure's TTS API. I want to use SSML for the text type, and I want to get gender/age group voices for the en-US language. I found that many voice profiles already exist for gender, but there are no supported voices for age groups (adult, senior, child). However, I was expecting to be able to create voices for age groups using the role attribute in SSML, but there seems to be a limit to the languages supported. Can you please provide a list of languages for which the role attribute can be used? Also, I would appreciate a guide for supporting age groups in en-US. If I need to adjust the properties of the voices (pitch, rate, etc.), please give me the values for the profiles for the 6 voices below.

  • Male
    • Adult
    • Senior(Older)
    • Child
  • Female
    • Adult
    • Senior(Older)
    • Child

Thank you.
