    Default Is there software that marks the stressed syllable for each word automatically?

    I am wondering if there is software that marks the stressed syllable for each word in a paragraph automatically. The software may work as follows.
    When I paste an excerpt into the editor, it will somehow mark the stressed syllable for each word and my job now is to print it out.

    I am eager to know if there is such software.

    It wouldn't work well, as computers can't detect parts of speech, e.g. REcord (n) vs reCORD (v).

    That is right. However, I am still hoping that there is such software even though it doesn't work well. With that software I only need to reread and check and correct some mistakes.
