Perhaps dependant on the particular TTS engine, but my guess is that the TTS engine will make a "best guess" at pronouncing the text.

Any comments?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, the TTS engine will try to pronounce what is typed out. So if you forget to put a space between two sentances, it will say the two words right after the other. If you put in a word it does not know how to pronounce (like a name), it could pronounce it very weird. This is ostensibly what SSML is for, though it depends on the TTS engine to see how effective it is.
