[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #793 There needs to be a way to explicitly set stress only via rules to support unstressed languages and other non-European languages.
By michael-conrad:

As stress is relative, for sound it is the same. Only difference is that phonetic output is longer/more cluttered.

I have recently become aware that espeak-ng is used extensively in the neural TTS community. They generally use it for the --ipa output.

Beyond the fact that outputing incorrect stuff is very bad practice (imho), this is an issue with potential cascade effects into other projects which need correct stress IPA marks output by espeak-ng.
