[espeak-ng:master] new issue: Klatt synthesizer has issues with Japanese language #github

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by The1Freeman:
#727 Klatt synthesizer has issues with Japanese language

For the record: I am no expert in the japanese language and am thus tinkering around with this, with that said however, the Japanese language in eSpeak-NG with any of the klatt voices (and the announcer voice) will produce weirdly sounding artifacts on certain phonemes, particularly with [[v]], [[n]], [[N]] and [[m]].

The best way to describe the glitch in the klatt synthesizer would be that it is too nasal with those phonemes whereas in the default voice it is not the case, the rest seem fine though, however with [[N]] the higher formants are loud, when that is not the case with the default voice.

klatt_glitch.zip

Attached is a zip archive containing two wav files which showcase this glitch in the japanese language, generated with [[vv]]. [[nn]]. [[NN]]. [[m]].

Just starting with eSpeak NG

Robo Pi <antiquecraftsman@...>
 

Hi, my name is James.

I just started learning about eSpeak.  I installed eSpeak and downloaded all the information about it.  I can see where it's going to be perfect for my intended project.

However, I have since learned that I need to use eSpeak NG.    How do I convert over to eSpeak NG?  Do I need to uninstall the original eSpeak?  Or do I just install eSpeak NG and leave the original eSpeak installed?

Also, is there any information on the major changes and/or improvements made to eSpeak NG.  And would I still use espeakedit or is there a new espeakedit-ng too?

[espeak-ng:master] new issue: Compilation of voice dictionary fails if code of language family is the same as languge #github

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by valdisvi:
#731 Compilation of voice dictionary fails if code of language family is the same as languge

Follow adding language guide and stupidly make language file in subfolder of the same name e.g. espeak-ng-data/qu/qu for Quechuan language. Spend day wondering why qu_dict is not created and output shows:

cd dictsource
./src/speak-ng --compile=qu
Using phonemetable: 'en'
Compiling: 'en_list'
	5458 entries
Compiling: 'en_emoji'
	1690 entries
Compiling: 'en_extra'
	0 entries
Compiling: 'en_rules'
	6743 rules, 103 groups (0)

Not counting problem between chair and keybord, problem is somewhere in LoadVoice() in voices.c file.

#730 Fix bug #706: pronunciation error with abbreviations followed by 's

@rhdunn, please review and merge fix for #706 I also made it work properly for other languages where, plural/genitive with ...s or ...'s doesn't have meaning (i.e. ..s is considered part of the root word) and updated tests.
