Pronouncing individual letters

Postby Tim » Tue Oct 16, 2007 1:25 pm

I was trying to figure out how to make Cepstral David pronounce ETS.
Is there a way to get Lexicon to pause between letters?

I added <break/> between each letter. I have a bash script that includes the following line:

SAY=`echo "$ACRONYM" | sed s/"\(.\)"/"\1<break\/>"/g`

If the variable $ACRONYM was "ETS", then $SAY would be "E<break/>T<break/>S<break/>". Cepstral will then say the three letters individually, with breaks in between. I've also used it for phone numbers, where I want it to read out the digits, not a very large number.
