[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #189 ipa output: option for “ə + ˞” rather than ɚ
By rhdunn:

Using the combined ɚ character is perfectly valid, just like using the combined a + umlaut character.

espeak-ng uses broad phoneme transcriptions for input specific to each language, just like the SPRs referenced in that link to the watson TTS docs, using an ASCII representation.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #190 support for parametric regional variants
By rhdunn:

The English voices use custom phonemes like A@ that map to John Wells' Lexical Sets comparing RP to GenAm, with an extension to support the unmerged Scottish NURSE vowel (FIR-FUR-FERN). These could be extended to add new phonemes that support different dialects of American English, or English in other countries.

#190 support for parametric regional variants

instead to phoneme substutions maybe try __% this & __% that region's vowels, question of whether to completely vowel drop distinctions (merger)

and maybe add support for american english variants https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_English_regional_phonology https//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_English https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inland_Northern_American_English https//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_English or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_English
