Hi Brian,

then you might report that back to the espeak ng devs.
you can ask the people on the espeak ng list as well.

The problems I referred to were some strings shut it up and some uK english words sounded incorrect in some cases when used in certain sentences.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Bug in espeak ng used in NVDA Next
NVDA next is using espeak ng 1.49.3 dev at the moment.
espeak ng hasn't got a new release.
though the latest espeak ng in nvda next is from the master branch.
in espeak ng master the bug was fixed.
this is a german only bug where there are issues with some phoneme changes.

Hi Simon,

What version of eSpeak-NG are you using?  Looking at: indicates that the latest
version is 1.49.2, which we updated to prior to NVDA 2017.4.

Having said that, I know there are still issues with eSpeak, some of which
are tracked on our issue tracker, and some on eSpeak-NG's here:

Kind regards

Hi all,

The currently used espeak ng has a bug in the german language.
The bug has been fixed and espeak ng should be updated to latest master.
haven't opened a ticket yet because i thought i'll not make to much
noise about it.
though i can open a ticket as well if the devs prefer that.

Greetings and thanks,
