For acoustic models other than American English, expect a performance capacity range of the following:

• Approximately the same performance capacity for other locales with a similar acoustic model (plus or minus 5%).

• Approximately 5-10% reduced performance capacity for each additional locale running on the same PA speech server.

• Approximately 15% reduced performance if the maximum number of enhanced TTS sessions configured.
