Katrin pronunciation of "Ich sollte weggehen"

Postby JamesC2020 » Fri Aug 02, 2013 2:44 pm

Please can you check Katrin's pronunciation of "Ich sollte weggehen" and advise me if it is correct?

The following command sounds to me incorrectly pronounced :-

    swift.exe -n Katrin "Ich sollte weggehen"
I have also checked on the web site (http://www.cepstral.com/en/Demos) and it also sounds to me incorrectly pronounced (Katrin saying "Ich sollte weggehen" on Demos web site).

The following three commands are all perfect, with clear and accurate pronunciation :-

    swift.exe -n Katrin "Ich sollte weg"
    swift.exe -n Katrin "Ich soll weggehen"
    swift.exe -n Matthias "Ich sollte weggehen"
Thank you for your time,
Best regards,

Hello James,

We replied to your ticket on this issue, but I'm also posting the response here in case it is helpful to anyone else.

I synthesized "Ich sollte weggehen" in both the Katrin and the Matthias voices on our demo page. The only substantial difference I found was that the final unit in "sollte" //z ao1 l. t ah0// is pronounced in a more elongated manner.

Could you verify that the pronunciation you expect would be as follows?

(q ih1 c)(z ao1 l. t ah0)(v eh1 k. g e1. en0)

Please refer to http://www.cepstral.com/en/tutorials/vi ... mes-german for the phoneme set.

If the only problem is the elongation of the /ah0/, thank you for bringing this to our attention, and it will be fixed in a future release.

If there is more to this issue, please let me know.
