    V oice Changing TTS Voice Pronounciations

    Is there a way to change TTS Loq7 voices so they can pronounce a name correctly?
    I did have a look at one of the lex files but not sure if that has anything to do with it.
    apart from the phoneme file is there anything else that can be changed so it says a word correctly

    random example:
    In scotland there is a town called "Milngavie", the gps says it as "Mingavie" which is wrong it is actually pronounced "Mill-Guy"

    so if there a way to change things manually?

    In this example, apart of the phoneme files for your map and region, as it is very specific, I think that the only solution is to translaite it in the "Dictionary.voice" file inside the zip file of the voice.

    Open your voice zip file (with a version under 4.0 of winzip), inside the folder i18n is the file "Dictionary.voice". You can open it with notepad and inserte the next:

    Milngavie="Mill Guy"

    Save the file, say yes if it ask you to update the file inside the zip, and test you voice. In this example it is only for a translation, but if there were a lot, you should do it by hand, one by one. I do not know if there is a specific phoneme for Scotland

    I have tried that method but unfortunately does not work

    Then, maybe you will have to modify some of the lua files inside the voice. You can try to put in the voice file the next

    ~Milngavie="Mill Guy"
