Great! If someone knows anyone in Techinion University - in Haifa, Israel, perhaps a teacher could take this project there...

I have added initial support for Hebrew MBROLA voices in eSpeak NG. You are welcome to improve it by yourself e.g. online here . Phonetic writing ([[...]]) is used in online demonstration because:

  1. Translation from Hebrew text to phonemes should be greatly improved in he_rules https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/dictsource/he_rules file. For information look at Text to Phoneme Translation https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/docs/dictionary.md .
  2. eSpeak NG phoneme to MBROLA phoneme mapping should be improved (only dummy stub file is created) and many phoneme mappings are missing in he https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/ file. For information look at MBROLA Voices https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/docs/mbrola.md and Readme for hb1 https://github.com/numediart/MBROLA-voices/tree/master/data/hb1 and Readme for hb2 https://github.com/numediart/MBROLA-voices/tree/master/data/hb2.
