Opinion wanted:
Jane pronounces Hylan drive in Henrietta NY so it rhymes with Dylan. Should be HIGH-lin. Confusing enough to change? If so i'll provide the segment links and TTS files.

I'd go with good enough............

I've heard some that are slightly off, but wouldn't be able to describe what's wrong.


I think some of the 'slightly off' ones have the correct syllables, but the timing is off slight pauses, or lack of pauses

Personally if it isn't confusing, or obviously wrong, I don't bother.

So driving around, i've found 3 more TTS problems. It seems like this could get out of hand easily. Do we have a "good enough" threshold, or do we want to report everything?

Guess we'll have to agree to disagree. How should I respond to the ur?

The difference is just not distinct enough for me to be able to work on a replacement. Potentials. Legal someone else will be able to figure it out, but not I. You can respond that the wrong pronunciation is so close to the correct pronunciation that out will be hard to fix in the near future.

The pitch and tone of the prompt is different, but neither sounds more like landa than Latta to me. I'm not sure we'll be able to do anything on this one.

I'm not hearing it wrong, or I'm not understanding what you're hoping to hear. Are you able to get the tts file that sounds wrong, and one that sounds right from your phone?
