[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Pull Request #810 Add some patterns to ja_rules
Thank you for reviewing my PR.
Sorry for the lack of explanation, here's why I removed "かあ", "すう", etc:.
- Currently, the "あ" is grouped with the "あ", ”ああ”, "あぁ", "あー".
However, when "かあ" is present, "かあぁ" or "かあー" is recognized as "かあ" + "ぁ" or "かあ" + "ー". Therefore, when we process some of the words now, "(en)" comes up.

$ echo 'スウェーデン' | espeak-ng -x -v ja

When I considered the above case, I thought it would be more appropriate for the case where ”かあ” becomes "kaa" rather than "ka:".

#811 Improved Interlingua voice
Hi, I've created the file ia_list to improve pronunciation for the ia voice. I'm not sure how to add it to your project, so I'll just leave it here.
Since Interlingua shares its sounds with the romance languages, I was wondering what steps would be needed to use existing mbrola voices like Italian.
