[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by isteven:
#252 Espeak + Mbrola + Javascript

Hi,

Is there a doc / example on how to use espeak + mbrola with Javascript?

I tried setting up espeak and mbrola on my machine (Win 7 64 bit). They work nicely using the command line (example: espeak -v mb-id1 "Halo"), however i'm not sure how to do it using Javascript.

Also, how do I know if the mbrola languages are installed properly? For example, will it be displayed on the language list in the demo page? (https://www.readbeyond.it/espeakng/)

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I can't select en-us from the website so I can't test my dialect, but it seems better. Hold on until after dinner tonight, and I'll build master with NVDA and test it.

I have pushed an update to espeak-ng that should fix this issue. I have included a test to help identify regressions like this in the future. Can you test these changes to verify that they fix the issues you have described here.

Hi Reece,

Thanks for that.
good that you found the cause.

I have now pushed a fix to espeak-ng that should address the issue and have included a test case to help identify any regressions in the future before they are included in the project.

Thanks for reporting the issue.

Kind regards,

Thanks for the report. I have identified the cause of this regression and am working on a fix. There is also a report of the problem at https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/issues/250. ( https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/issues/250. )

I also have an idea on reducing the possibility of unwanted regressions in the future.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #251 Tracking other parallel espeak developments ?
By rhdunn:

I'm already keeping track of other espeak projects. There does not need to be an issue for this.

I am aware of espeak-en-us. That project cannot be incorporated as is, as it tends to create American English specific pronunciations, but I do incorporate several fixes from that project into espeak-ng.

Hi,

next isn't stable.
though the german issues also happen in next beginning just recently.
seems they have updated espeak ng. *smile*
fortunately the issues seem to have been found.

great to hear.

Hello,
This happens in the Spanish dialect of Spanish. It does happen in NVDA stable, but in Next.
Thanks,

I just check with the last table release in Spanish, there does not seem to be any major change, no changes to the exiting on some of the dip have happened between old and new generations. The only alveolar uvular or guttural I can think of is final hour, which has always made that sound. Also which accents are you using, Latin America or Spain? There are slight differences in the pronunciation of consonants between those two accents of Espeak.

Hi,

What happened to Spanish? Espeak NG now literally deletes the word initial y's (try yo, ya, yate), and the /r/ sound doesn't sound right (it sounds as if it wasn't an alveolar trill anymore, but a postalveolar, or even more back, one). Also, the first sound in the dypthong in /oi/ sounds slightly more open than what it was before. And finally, the commbination /dy/ gives the approximant sound for the dd, rather than the plosive one.

Thanks,

The most noticeable difference I can hear is missing n at the end of
"stern".
For now I could say that it should be related to phoneme definitions or
sound generation, as phoneme representation is still the same.

Hi Valdis,

Yes it does sound not right.

Here's another example:

Hi all,

I just figured out while updating nvda that they also seemed to
have
updated the synth.

espeak ng now seems to have some weird issues in german with some
letters.
like the n and the s in special constelations.
as well as the c, k and ck.

The word computer now sounds weird and strange as something
happened
to
the c as it kind of got way too soft.
as well as the german word drucker, lampe where the ck like in
computer
starts to flow apart. the same with lampe where the p kind of is
weird.
in the word stern as well. the n is barely hearable.


anyone figured that out as well?

Simon

Hi,

Errata: It does *not* happen in NVDA stable, but in Next.

Thanks,

Sukil

I just check with the last table release in Spanish, there does not seem to be any major change, no changes to the exiting on some of the dip have happened between old and new generations. The only alveolar uvular or guttural I can think of is final hour, which has always made that sound. Also which accents are you using, Latin America or Spain? There are slight differences in the pronunciation of consonants between those two accents of Espeak.

Hi,

What happened to Spanish? Espeak NG now literally deletes the word initial y's (try yo, ya, yate), and the /r/ sound doesn't sound right (it sounds as if it wasn't an alveolar trill anymore, but a postalveolar, or even more back, one). Also, the first sound in the dypthong in /oi/ sounds slightly more open than what it was before. And finally, the commbination /dy/ gives the approximant sound for the dd, rather than the plosive one.

Thanks,

Sukil

Hi Valdis,

Yes it does sound not right.

Here's another example:

Does it sounds wrong on http://odo.lv/Espeak?language=en to you?

Hi all,

I just figured out while updating nvda that they also seemed to
have
updated the synth.

espeak ng now seems to have some weird issues in german with some
letters.
like the n and the s in special constelations.
as well as the c, k and ck.

The word computer now sounds weird and strange as something
happened
to
the c as it kind of got way too soft.
as well as the german word drucker, lampe where the ck like in
computer
starts to flow apart. the same with lampe where the p kind of is
weird.
in the word stern as well. the n is barely hearable.


anyone figured that out as well?

Greetings,
Simon

Thanks for the report. I have identified the cause of this regression and am working on a fix. There is also a report of the problem at https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/issues/250.

I also have an idea on reducing the possibility of unwanted regressions in the future.

Kind regards,

Reece

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by derekriemer:
#250 some words in NVDA are starting to speak incorrectly since the last espeak NG update for it

Hi:

NVDA is currently incubating https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/pull/7115 which is causing some words to break in english US. Here are a list I have compiled. compiled compressional condolence current continue

The issue is that the c at the beginning of the words is way to short, so it kind of sounds like the second vowel is simply being shortened. I am not sure how to explain this without telling someone the pronunciation I expect. as this will affect NVDA, cc @jcsteh @MichaelDCurran
