[espeak-ng:master] new issue: How to set SSML on by default for /emscripten directory? #github

espeak-ng@groups.io Integration <espeak-ng@...>
 

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by guest271314:
#736 How to set SSML on by default for /emscripten directory?

https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/tree/master/emscripten does not set SSML option (-m) to on by default nor provide a means to do so.

Adding a <break> element to demo https://www.readbeyond.it/espeakng/ results in "break" then "time" being output to speakers.

How to update code in /emscripten directory to set SSML parsing on by default for all synthesis?

Testing with en (and en-us) latest master 1764ec647f19258a19665e227c6d15850139963c.

  1. Mr. Smith
  2. Mr Smith

I think 1 should sound like 2, since the abbreviation is just replacing the word.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #732 Initial support for Hebrew language
By valdisvi:

Thanks for contribution! It is added in project with slight modificatons. Most important, there is no need to redefine all phonemes without changes from base1 table. You just need to describe, which table you extend in phonemes file. I did simple test with text from wikipedia, and it still doesn't find pronunciation for letters:

 espeak-ng -x -vhe "הַבֵּן שֶׁלּוֹ הוּא אַבָּא שֶׁלָּהּ"

I think, there should be settings in tr_languages.c file, similarly to Arabic.

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

espeak-ng@groups.io Integration <espeak-ng@...>
 

[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?
