Amazon Transcribe table format specifying IPA

0

I am processing a custom vocabulary table using the console at: https://console.aws.amazon.com/transcribe/

I've chosen a line from the example given

Phrase[TAB]SoundsLike[TAB]IPA[TAB]DisplayAs
C.L.I.[TAB][TAB]sɪ ɛl aɪ[TAB]CLI`

TAB is replaced with actual tabs and line endings ending with LF

Once processed for an en-GB or en-US custom vocabulary, it fails with the error: Validation error: File contains invalid characters or format in the IPA column. Error at line 2.

If I modify the file to include extra spaces it succeeds, as in

Phrase[TAB]SoundsLike[TAB]IPA[TAB]DisplayAs
C.L.I.[TAB][TAB]s ɪ ɛ l aɪ[TAB]CLI

This error indicates that the examples given are incorrect or outdated. Is there another way to specify the syllables of a word by grouping characters together as in the examples?

This was an issue with the webpage examples. The examples have now been updated and now show spaces between all characters. So the issue I was initially seeing was intended behaviour, and spaces are required.
