    Default Who creates the Phoneme files?

    I use HERE maps and a lot of names of streets are spoken incorrect. I have contacted HERE and they said they do not provide phonetic files to iGO so who makes and decides the phoneme files for them?

    also, is there a manual way to change the way street names are pronounced?
    example
    Town of Dalry in Scotland is spoken as Dal Rie on igo, however the proper way to say it is Dal Rye and Milingavie near Glasgow is said as Milin Gavie yet its proper pronounced Mill Guy.

    I use WINCE device not an android one.

    Hi Urbexuk


    you raise a frequent problem and I hope that through this discussion we arrive at a radical solution

    on my side I tried Changes in config_transform_table.lua / config / voice_TTS-Pro-Nuance-Android.zip.

    {1, L "Charles III", L "Charle three"},

    the result is not conclusive to 100%

    is there any other solution I am taker

    I don't care who told you, they are wrong. TomTom makes it for TomTom maps. HERE makes it for HERE maps.

    You can use TomTom phonemes with HERE maps with no problems.
    By the way if you think your scottish street and place. names sound odd you ought to try our maori ones . I did once fix a few by messing about in config_transform_tables.lua as mentioned by LouBouha but there are too many words and too little time.

    I also used phoeneme files combined, mostly TT, I added those missing from Here package. Maps are from TT.
    But, these files can make a problem if a program is used in a language other than English. And if you use TTS, they are usually unusable.

    Many questions become very arduous, a lot of time chewed deja vu...Since we have lost all the year of work and effort, many people have no will to answer the same questions again. Me neither. Use a search, please.
