[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #616 `espeak-ng --ipa -v de ütz` produces the phoneme `ˈ?ts` -- ? is not a proper phoneme.
By valdisvi:

For many phonemes in espeak-ng, IPA name is not defined and then name given in configuration (e.g. for phoneme a a is used). In this case wrong entry ipa ? was added for phoneme y. You can review ph_german and check for any other errors or missing IPA names for phoneme entries.

By valdisvi:

Safe way would be for you to customize your espeak-ng. In espeak-ng project create file dictsource/en_extra and add following line to it:

dengler d'ENgl3 $capital

Then recompile entire project with command make -B in the espeak-ng folder or recompile only English language:

cd your-place/espeak-ng/dictsource/
../src/espeak-ng --compile=en

where your-place is actual place of the espeak-ng project.

@valdisvi Yes, but the name is never pronounced in the way that Espeak-ng does.

@valdisvi Yes, but the name is never pronounced in the way that Espeak-ng does, so it should really be fixed at the project level.

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by vimalan-sakthivel:
#301 handling of line breaks and clause detection

When the word NEW is in caps, eSpeak NG reads it by letters as N.E.W.

For example: the below headings are read out as N E W release. <h3>NEW RELEASE</h3> <h3 style="text-transform: uppercase">new release</h3>

This behavior is not exhibited by other synthesizers, Example: Microsoft Speech API version 5

Note: I am testing this with NVDA v 2017.2

By ndarilek:

Would be great to see a fix for this. I'm trying to create Flatpak packages with this as a dependency, and it's frustrating that I can't point to an actual tar.gz that flatpak-builder can actually download and compile.

Thanks.

#623 Words ending with a "e" in German are pronounced wrong

eSpeak-NG has a problem with the German language, in which it pronounces words that end with a "e" too short.

The "e" is supposed to be longer, comparing the sentence "Eine wohl mächtige Waffe." in eSpeak-NG and Google Translate (and any native speaking German), shows that eSpeak-NG is wrong in this case.

By hozosch:

This was my mistake, and I rectified it in pull request 624. I thought it sounds natural to me, and I'm a native German, but then, that may vary from person to person. In fact, I like it also with the longer word ending better (please confirm if this is ok for you), but I definitely don't like it as long as that before another consonant like n or l. In the attached file you can hear my change.

Sincerelly,

Karl

Better than before, that's nice. But it sounds as though it still could be made even better. What do you suggest, if this is so?

It could be made better, though I don't know how or what I can suggest to improve it (and to add, the german voice needs a ton of improvement to be at least on par with other voice synthesizers).
