I have the following program that is trying to pronounce a line of Danish text. I can't figure out why it is pronouncing it wrong. It should sound like "po so mo fo po", but it doesn't sound at all like that. It sounds more like "p n s n m n f n p n". I am using the Danish voice "Magnus" so it should know how to pronounce these. Also, when I use OSX Voice Over to pronounce the words it sounds right.
#!/usr/bin/env python # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- from AppKit import NSSpeechSynthesizer import time import sys nssp = NSSpeechSynthesizer ve = nssp.alloc().init() from_voice = "com.apple.speech.synthesis.voice.magnus.premium" line = "på så må få på" ve.setVoice_(from_voice) ve.startSpeakingString_(line) time.sleep(1) while ve.isSpeaking(): time.sleep(1)
