#616 `espeak-ng --ipa -v de ütz` produces the phoneme `ˈ?ts` -- ? is not a proper phoneme.

espeak-ng --ipa -v de ütz produces the phoneme ˈ?ts but this question mark:? is not a proper phoneme as far as I can tell. I can't find it in the IPA rules and my cereproc engine does not pronounce it.

#617 Generating speech from phonemes? / Phoneme representation specification

Hello,

Can espeak-ng take IPA phonemes as input or only its custom phoneme representation (eg espeak-ng "[[h@´loU]]")?

Is there a specification or documentation of this phoneme representation or a table listing all characters? The representations in docs/phoneme_model.md and docs/phonemes.md don't look like the example above.

Thanks.

Some of these have double meanings. Texts should be rather read as is. Those who like to have them should add them only for their copy of Espeak-NG or use the screen reader's dictionary

By valdisvi:

speak-ng seems just wrapper (probably for backward compatibility) of espeak-ng.

In English, the city name Binghamton should be pronounced /ˈbɪŋəmtən/, per Wikipedia. Thanks in advance!

#621 mbrola not working

Hi, First of all: https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/docs/mbrola.md => you says "Linux installation" but it's not - it's "Debian" installation. For Linux installation, we need something more "global" and universal.

So, now :)

On Fedora. I decided to compile espeak-ng myself (it seems that the provided package in repository is not compiled with mbrola support)

I did:

./autogen.sh
./configure --with-mbrola
make
sudo make install

Pcaudiolib is installed, everything is ok.

I now compiled MBROLA myself from https://github.com/numediart/MBROLA

make
sudo cp Bin/mbrola /usr/local/bin/mbrola

OK.

I now tried to download and install voices from https://github.com/numediart/MBROLA-voices Tried: - sudo cp -r data/* /usr/local/share/espeak-ng-data/mbrola (with directory created) - in /usr/share/mbrola - with something that worked weeks ago:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/mbrola/voices
for voice in data/*; do
    voice=$(basename $voice)
    sudo cp data/$voice/$voice /usr/share/mbrola/voices
done

Wherever I put voices, espeak-ng doesn't see voices, and cannot speak with mbrola voice:

 espeak-ng -v mb-fr1 "Coucou"
mbrola: Fatal error in line:
mbrola: 
mbrowrap error: mbrola exited with status 253

So, maybe it's mbrola, maybe not...

To be sure, I tried from MBROLA voices dir:

espeak-ng -v mb-fr4 "Une phrase pour tester" --pho -s 110 | mbrola fr4/fr4 - out.wav
paplay out.wav 

And it works.

So, the problem is to find mbrola voices - any help ?

By metal3d:

OK... I make a git bisect on mbrola. The last commit breaks things. I still not see "mb" voices with espeak-ng --voices but espeak-ng -v mb-fr2 "Une phrase pour tester" is working.

So, the only problem is to know why I cannot list mb voices now.

OK... forget... It seems that the problems come from the bad mbrola commit. Reverted and reinstalled is ok.
