Hi Angela and List

I understand exactly what you say. In Afrikaans I have the same problem. It is true that many of the Afrikaans speaking people pronounce their "r" like the French, but it is not the norm.

I echo your sentiments concerning the request for someone, with much more knowledge than I on this matter, to try and make a plan.

I have a further problem with ESpeak in Afrikaans. When I use certain voices it sounds like someone speaking with loose false teeth, at the point of losing them. Maybe the developers can try to solve that problem while they work on the "r".

What I really do not like about espeak is the sound of r in my
language: the letter is spoken very different in Italian.
It is not like the French r.

Please, if you could try to solve this.
Hope I was clear as I don't know how to better explain that.
Thank you.

I would love the speech player edward voice to support all of espeak's
phonemes and languages as well as the default voice. I like klatt
voices. but my issue with klatt edward is that it does not have all
the phonemes of original espeak. please fix this because i really like
the edward voice and wish i could just use it in any espeak-supported language!
