[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #320 Mac OS X install
By SearaChen:

@cainesap I had some what of a similar issue with you, I am wondering before you put sudo make LIBDIR=/usr/local/lib install , what command did you put for " ./configure --build=... --host=... --target=... " ? like what did you use in place of the ... for the option of build, host and target?

Thank you so much!

[espeak-ng/espeak-ng] Pull request opened by dmgolubovsky:

#587 Enable loading voice definitions from arbitrary files

I use espeak/espeak-ng to synthesize vocals for songs. See / listen https://golubovsky.bandcamp.com/album/unhuman-voices Synthesizing vocals requires voice definitions very different from voices used for speech. Besides, many voice adjustments are needed in the process of song composition, and different voices needed for different parts of a song. Default location of voice files in an installed espeak is under /usr/lib... that is, area not writable by users which makes it very inconvenient to edit voice definition files "ad-hoc". The patch adds flag-option --load which makes the voice name provided with -v being treated as path to a file rather than just a voice name. Thanks.

Improvements for Urdu

Hello,


Some more pronunciation changes for Urdu in the attached dictionary files. I hope these can be included in eSpeak-ng.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Pull Request #588 Modify Vietnamese phoneme rules and tone
By valdisvi:

Thanks for contribution! Your changes are included in master as separate commits instead of automatic merge because: 1. Merged branches make bisection harder and (I don't like merging messages generated for automatic merges in GitHub). 2. I squashed three forward-and-backward vowel modifications in one commit, and also added prefix "vi: " in message to highlight changed language better. It will be nice, if you will follow this message convention in future. 3. I added another change 8356a18 for automated pronunciation changes due do changed pronunciation rules. (that is why All checks have failed message appeared in your pull request status). In future you can check this with make check command and adjust tests appropriately yourself.

Thanks for contribution!

Your changes are included in this commit:
https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/commit/b8baa1e6cd9dfa262687b68fd
713e1edfb96de5b

Note that your files had Byte order mark at the beginning of the file
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte_order_mark

I removed it myself, because it may break/confuse some tools (mostly
simply written scripts). You should check, how to configure your (or
choose proper) editor to not put it in file.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Pull Request #533 Added Pyash constructed language to eSpeak
By valdisvi:

Hi, @elspru! I hesitate to include your pull request because: 1. Puash language seems just made up by you, because I couldn't find any reliable resource about it. Can you provide reliable information that this language is recognized and has correct code for it. 2. Changes in configuration files seems inconsistent, language code is sometimes shortened as puac, sometimes as puash and there are also references to lobjan, which is different language (which has entry in wikipedia though).

#589 Getting phoneme features

Hi,

The page "Phoneme Features and the International Phonetic Alphabet" describes the schema supported by eSpeak. However, it's not cleat to me what command to run to actually get the features for a given word in (say) Italian or Latin. I'd appreciate your help.

mis spoken word

Travis Siegel
 

I noticed today when proofreading a document that espeak (I'm using the ivan voice) says wichita (which is a city in Kansas I believe) as if it ended in an r.

It says it as if it were spelled

witchitar.  I find this very strange, and interestingly enough, I've run across this kind of behavior before.  I don't know why it would do this, but if anyone has the capability to figure it out, it may lead to fixing several mispronunciations.

Re: mis spoken word

Pronunciation for Wichita is set explicitly in pronunciation file:

https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/dictsource/en_list#L
4451

Therefore (I assume), it is correct pronunciation for UK English.

What you think should be correct pronunciation for (I assume) US
English?

Fairly simple, use A: instead of a@
