[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #825 Hebrew is not supported
By jaacoppi:

What I know is that there is something wrong... If you being a developer does not know... So, who knows? Is my versions of espek-ng in debian and archlinux the right one? If so, should this versions have "he" - Hebrew support on it? If so, why I do not see this when I install espeak-ng in both systems?

Read through the posts in this thread. For Hebrew support, you'll need 1.51-dev. Hebrew support has been added after version 1.50. Version 1.51 hasn't been released yet. That's why it's called 1.51-dev.

I do not know which versions Debian or Arch linux have. If you want them to have the latest version (1.51-dev from git), ask them to include it. The other option is to build from source. The instructions are in https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/docs/building.md

Second question, why do all other languages know the Hebrew alphabet? It's because espeak-ng is programmed to spell out the letters of unknown alphabets one by one. It doesn't matter if the writing is in Hebrew, Telugu, Chinese, Greek or any other supported language. Espeak-ng recognises that this script is not native to this language. Note that this is a different discussion for a different thread.

@OrionRandD, please read carefully, what I already wrote in previous comment:

hr is code for Croatian and he is for Hebrew of natively synthesized eSpeak NG voices.

If you use different voice, which doesn't have defined pronunciation of characters for other language, it is nothing wrong, if spells unicode names for these characters. You can get the same behaviour, if you use English, Latvian or other language instead of Hebrew e.g.:

espeak-ng -ven "דוגמה" -X
espeak-ng -vlv "דוגמה" -X

Ok, thanks. Debian and Archlinux install 1.50. I will just wait for 1.51... Fair enough thx a lot to explain my questions...
