Re: I take it there have been no improvements to the flawed espeak ng in 2017.4?
Hi all,toggle quoted message Show quoted text
This thread is about certain regressions and mispronunciations
introduced inadvertently in recent versions of ESpeak-NG resultant of
some fixes and patches correcting the pronunciation of other words.
The suggestion of using audiobooks, or more broadly speaking,
human-narrated audio, instead to read content holds no relevance here,
is quite impractical for reasons well explicated by Sharni and others
in previous messages, and merely serves as a distraction from the
original point. The suggestion of using a Braille display is also a
similar digression from the actual issue at hand. Recommending
alternative speech synthesizers is fine, but when one has already
presented reasons for wanting to stay with ESpeak-NG, it is important
to realize and recognize this perfectly respectable view. Since we
have got Reece, the current lead maintainer of the ESpeak-NG project
on this thread, it would be best to try and make the most of this
dialogue rather than raising unrelated topics, especially in a
potentially discourteous manner.
On that note, I would like to bring to your attention, Reece, the fact
that ESpeak-NG’s Emoji support was specifically removed from NVDA, as
far as I recollect, since it was causing major freezes/crashes with
certain characters in some languages, one of which included Hindi and
plagued me for a brief while as I was testing an RC build of NVDA. It
would be deeply appreciated if you could take a look at what happened
in this regard, because Emoji support is still something many people
are desirous of, or at least I am at least.
P.S. I am not specifically responding to the quoted message at all.
