#590 German: Fixed some more pronunciation errors

Re: mis spoken word

Travis Siegel
 

Yeah, that's the word alright, but I can't figure out how to read the pronunciation it's supposed to have.  If it helps, the word should be pronounced like witch then a short i as in iguana, then a ta ending like tah (same as utah).  Not sure why it would require a special entry in the dictionary, I don't know how to remove entries from the dictionary myself, or I'd try that and see how it pronounces it on its own, but sounding like an r is at the end of it certainly isn't correct.

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

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

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.

Hi,

Removing it completely causes a different, wrong pronunciation
altogether. I suggest that little change I mentioned in my previous
mail. Currently the entry is made like this:

Wichita        wItSI#tA@

This should be changed to:

Wichita        wItSI#tA:
To make the US English voice pronounce it right.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #584 emscripten demo broken, probably highlights underlying problem linked to dictionary compilation
By BenTalagan:

One possible explanation that occurs to me is that emscripten uses 32-bit technology. I may be wrong (I haven't had a look in detail in dictionary compiler sourcecode) but it seems to me that part of the compiled dict format is integer-aligned, without taking care of sizeof(int). Thus, compiling the rules on a 64-bit platform, then packaging it for a 32-bit emscripten is risky, isn't it?

That's correct. 'A@' is used for START words (words typically spelled with 'ar'), while 'A:' is used for PALM words. These are documented at https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/docs/languages/gmw/en.md.

Kind regards,

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Pull Request #587 Enable loading voice definitions from arbitrary files
By dmgolubovsky:

Hi

The pull request has been open for 2 weeks, no comments, no rejection, nor is it accepted. Some people listened to my songs though ;) I understand that my patch likely needs some improvement, but I'd like to know the maintainer's position on this feature: loading voice definitions from arbitrary files rather than from the predefined locations. If there are objections please let me understand.

Thanks
