I have made some changes in the attached ur_list and ur_rules

It
would be great if these changes could be included in eSpeak-NG.

What is the problem? The developed support is ar (standard Arabic) and not Algerian, what's new?

Dear Sir,

I thank you for your answer. The problem is that Taha Zerrouki has applied Algerian Arabic (arq) phonology to Modern Standard Arabic (ar) texts.

Yours Sincerely,

Houcemeddine Turki

abdelwaheb turki <turkiabdelwaheb@...>
 

Dear Sir,

I thank you for your answer. I recommend recognizing this file as the layout for Algerian Arabic speech synthesis. Then, it should have several slight adjustments. Adjusting arq_list by including Algerian pronunciation of numbers and adding [v] to arq_rules and adjusting short vowel pronunciation. As for Arabic (ar), we have just to substitute Algerian phonemes by Arabic phonemes. This will not be very difficult.

Yours Sincerely,

Houcemeddine Turki

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #186 Improve the Arabic support
By rhdunn:

According to comments on the espeak-ng mailing list, the Arabic in espeak-ng is arq (Algerian Arabic), not ar (Standard Arabic). As such, both dialects/macrolanguages should be supported once the pronunciation rules have been improved and cleaned up.

Dear Sir,

I thank you for involving Arabic to eSpeak. However, I think that it still requires some adjustments. In fact, ض is [dˤ], ظ is [ðˤ] and ج is [ʒ]. As I have seen the source code of Taha Zerrouki, I can confirm you that Taha was influenced by the phonology of Algerian Arabic dialect (arq). This phonology is different from the one of the Modern Standard Arabic (ar) that was defined in the 19th Century by getting based on the medieval linguistic work of Sebawayh.

Yours Sincerely,

This version of Espeak only works from the W10?

Assunto: [espeak-ng] eSpeak NG 1.49.1 #release

Hi all,

I have released eSpeak NG 1.49.1, which is available at https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/releases/tag/1.49.1.

What's New:

* Vim syntax support for rule files.
* Replace ieee80.c with the implementation at http://www.realitypixels.com/turk/opensource/ToFromIEEE.c.txt ( http://www.realitypixels.com/turk/opensource/ToFromIEEE.c.txt ) for Debian open source license
compliance.
* Documentation updates.
* Emscripten support.
* Merged the Android port into the main espeak-ng codebase.
* Extend --compile-phoneme to support specifying the source directory for phoneme files.
* Support using any directory as the data home, not just espeak-ng-data .
* Don't install the default voice: use en as the default voice.

*NOTE:* The merger of the Android code is currently experimental. It is
missing support for recognising Unicode characters.

bug fixes:

* Fix .Lnn rule groups to allow groups above 62.
* Fix reporting the eSpeak NG version in the --version string and Windows installer.
* Fix a crash when calling LoadDictionary when using clang.
* Threading fixes and Mac OSX portability for the fifo and event code.
* Fixes for running the spect code on big-endian architectures.
* Fix determining the voice directory when installing the 32-bit Windows binaries on a 64-bit Windows system.
* Fix a regression with the saved parameter logic.
* Reduce the default buffer length to 60mS to improve latency.
* Don't override buffer length when using espeak-ng for audio.
* Fix detecting doubled consonants when using Unicode characters.
* Fix speaking 1,,2 , etc. in languages that use , as a decimal separator.

updated languages:

* af (Afrikaans) -- Christo de Klerk
* en (English) -- Valdis Vitolins
* fa (Farsi/Persian) -- Shadyar Khodayari
* it (Italian) -- chrislm
* ky (Krygyz) -- JRMeyer
* lv (Latvian) -- Valdis Vitolins
* tr (Turkish) -- Valdis Vitolins

new languages:

* ar (Arabic) -- Taha Zerrouki
* jp (Japanese) -- Reece Dunn (NOTE: Hiragana and Karakana only.)

Kind regards,
Reece

[espeak-ng] New branch 1.49.1 was created by rhdunn.


[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by ValdisVitolins:
#199 Language analysis improvements

Language analysis and spelling decisions could be improved by introducing following new features: - [ ] extend verb follows/noun follows marks to more/arbitrary flags, which then can be used to make different pronunciation rules for homonyms - [ ] J statement as precondition, to allow choosing pronunciation from preceding word - [ ] possibility to go back to start of the rules and redo analysis again (I.e. not only after removing pre/suf-fixes. Could be performance drain, if used improperly.) - [ ] replace rule extended to replace not only characters, but group of characters, also probably replace using matching rules - [ ] _list extended to mark arbitrary defined word types by comparing only root part of the word (i.e. partial match without pre/suffixes) - [ ] output (prosody data) extended to mark syllables with more/arbitrary defined ways for different pronuciations (e.g. high/low pitch for Chinese etc.) - [ ] Fix issue #196 Word end mark _ doesn't work properly with ~ character group.
