No I don't have a link.

Not for that anyway.

Hi Sean,

Broadly speaking, we update the eSpeak for the same reason most things get
updated - because the new version may fix errors (such as the ones noted at
the start of this thread) or include new languages. Of course, as noted by
this thread, sometimes an update causes other things to break, and
obviously that is unintentional, and often not known until we get reports
like this.

Re X Synth, do you have a link please?

Well to be honest why do we bother to always update stable to the latest
espeak ng.

In fact why do we use espeak ng at all, we should find a stable version of
x synth and use it.

The only reason I'd even update the synth is if it became a problem or
security risk

We changed from using eSpeak NG 1.49.1 in 2017.3 to using 1.49.2, but for
those not using the Next or Master snaps, the RC builds (or the final
2017.4 when it comes out) are likely the first time they've tried it. So,
as Brian guessed, it's likely that the issues here are not specific to
RC as such, but to the change in eSpeak version, since the RCs are a bit
more widely distributed. It would be good to get confirmation from Marco

I got the impressing it was RCs in this series actually.
I have certainly noticed some strangenesses in Espeak on recent snapshots
since the last two updates of espeak NG, none for the better particularly
in English hence my work around mentioned in my reply.

I guess the most noticable is the way it says the word for in some
circumstances, making it into fur. Brian

Subject: Re: [nvda] Some misstakes in new rc NVDA version

Your subject line refers to the new RC version.

Is this problem something new in the latest RC version and did not exist
earlier (RC or otherwise) versions, or does the same problem also exist
older (especially standard release) versions of NVDA?

At the first, where can I inform about this thing of NVDA misstakes of,
for example Espeak NG?

Because I have noticed, that new Mandarin Chinese is badly pronounced
NVDA in that way, that syllable and some kind of number. Maybe, this is
problem of Espeak NG, but I am not shure.

Nextly, arabic letter meem is pronounced in Espeak, like meetar, but I
think, that It is incorrect.

Where can I issued those things?

Thank You.
