Thanks for reporting this issue. Unfortunately, it looks like this is a unit selection issue that is only reproducible in this instance. Currently, there is no easy way to fix the rootcause. But you can work around the issue by tweaking the phonemes in the phoneme tag slightly and passing it:
Your watch will now be <phoneme alphabet="x-sampa" ph='%ak.tIv."eIt.Id'> activated.</phoneme > ``` Best, Aanusha
Thank you for the help. I raises one other question: In order to make it easier to author phoneme tags, is there a way to output speech as phonemes? That way, if I like the way the system pronounces something, I could ideally copy/paste the phoneme it's using.
I tried to change the output type to Speech Marks, selecting SSML as the Speech Mark type, hoping that it would output text with phoneme tags. However, it only appears to output an empty file. And I wouldn't be surprised if phoneme tags are just used as input into your system, and the system doesn't generate phoneme tags as part of its text to speech conversion process.
Anyway, the more general question is whether there's an easier way to author phoneme tags that sound correct, other than trial-and-error?
