[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #797 Please can I build Espeak-ng from Alpine Linux?
By jaacoppi:

See https://github.com/espeak-ng/espeak-ng/blob/master/autogen.sh

It seems Alpine is missing libtoolize. Autogen.sh should provide a proper error message about it instead of just failing.

Unfortunately, libtoolize is really not available in Alpine Linux repositoryes. And copy command really do not work because Alpine is based on Busybox. So as I see, there is complex and long way to build Espeak-ng and other similar apps. Because I think, that building libtoolize from this non standard Linux distribution will be not easy.

Alpine contain Espeak which is build without support to stream audio by using sockets. So I Am triing to build Espeak-ng I will try to debate with ALpine Linux devs but I think, that some tools are not used thanks to its security issues so those tools do not met The Alpine Linux securirty standards. So very probably, Speech-dispatcher or Espeak-ng will not work or it will be issues to build it.

I have a good news. libtoolize exists for ALpine like libtool so I will have some chances to build.

[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:

You can adjust length of long vowels by redefining length of phoneme :, length of : is declared in phsource/phonemes file as 70 ms in phsource/ph_cherokee file. For mentioned example I wonder, why after replacement hị²go²wah²ta: becomes xcgoxcwahxcta with missing, but hi²go²wah²ta: becomes xcgoxcwahxcta as expected.

If you remove the patch for L3('c', 'h', 'r') and recompile, the incorrectly processed hị²go²wah²ta: should then be processed correctly.

This indicates the language rules flags being set are somehow interfering with the chr.rules file.

ph_cherokee already specifies vowel lengths. The issue is where espeak-ng is lengthing vowels that should not be lengthened. Like at the end of words. In stressed syllables. Even though the chr language file indicates all vowels are the same length and loudness, they get altered anyways.
