[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #178 upgrade internal audio quality (sample-rate & bit-depth)
By cmrdt:

there is also concern for certain words, phonemes/languages, and voice config's there is risk of clipping) causing artifacts what adversely affect the quality/clarity of the audio workaround might include

  • floating-point processing/output
  • dynamic-volume leveling (but that would interfere with SSML volume/emphasis prosody)
  • reduce the default volume output to give more headroom

#227 manual phoneme input peculiarities

when doing manual phoneme input:

  • [[___]]’s possessive case (e.g. for names) isn't parsed (space-separated ˈɛs) (rather do s|z|ɪz)

  • stress markers',: if don't manually input or via infer from lookup/similar word, lack of (dictionary?) heuristics at times make the word sound worse is there way to specify degree of manual/auto?

  • when changing language e.g. to use other vowel/phoneme sets via SSML tags: e.g. <voice xml:lang="es"> stuff <voice xml:lang="en-us"> it does a grammar/parsing reset therefore pitch and intonation is reset as though it were a new sentence, [[_^_esstuff_^_en-us]] or [[_^_es]] stuff [[_^_en-us]] bypasses this, as long it is not interrupted by a newline

  • ~unexpected/confusing [[Q"Ql# _^_ipa GRK]] as ʁɣɬ (͡i͡p͡a) ɣʁɬ~ , no space before _^_ produces [[a_^_ipa a]] as ˈa(͡g͡n)yɕɛ a

  • ~not all languages/variants seem reachable via _^_~ when invalid _^_ typed, it repeats previous word

    • should it be better documented? (what is base1 base2? havent figured it out yet)

  • at least allows combining from multiple non-tonal languages into one synth- word [[_^_ipa ts) _^_fr-ca y _^_ar H _^_es own _^_en-us Iz]]

also question regarding loanwords which often differ from pronunciation norm's should they use  some of other language's phoneme set?   by how much ? the degree it has been normalized, integrated into common-use

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #232 Handle all letters in ligatures
By valdisvi:

More proper way would be replacing ligatures with two letters (see issue #199), but currently as workaround I added separate pronunciation rules for æ an œ ligatures.
