I have a dictionary question / request.
I use Australian spelling (essentially British spelling).
If I use US voices that are based on US dictionaries, say like Heather or Ryan, and use Aussie spellings for words like:
... scepticism, favourite, envisaged, humourless
I get quite odd pronunciations. To get this right, I need to do a respell for every word which has a different British-US spelling.
I have been able to write rules which deal with some of these, but its quite labour intensive.
I have had some success with constructs like:
... recognise, realisation, civilisation, colour, humour, favour, favoured
... humourless, or favourite, for example
Is there any way of correcting this difference in software? Or providing a list of these variant respellings as a standard dictionary addition?
Oddly, the Australian scansoft voices are able to pronounce US spellings correctly. UK Graham gets most of them too.
