#704 Espeak not translating phonemes for mbrola if mbrola voice is not used
I'm maybe pushing the limits of what should be done with Espeak (as a phonemizer) a bit far, but here's what I'd like to do: I'd like to phonemize some text, in the SAMPA format, with the symbols strictly defined on the original SAMPA website . I don't need either the length of phonemes, or their stresses.
A way to get that is to use a mbrola voice, and ask for the mbrola output ith
Since the regular way to get some phonemized non-SAMPA output for some speech is :
I thought, well, I should just switch the language to
... as you can see, it doesnt work. However, the translation works fine if you use
This is a bit surprising, and counter-intuitive if you want to get some SAMPA-compatible (yet not for mbrola) phonemized version of some text. I'm using espeak 1.49.2 (official Ubuntu package).
