I've noticed that RealSpeak handles some things far better than
Eloquence. But stumbles over simple things. Why on earth would
RealSpeak give a simple word like lame a French pronunciation in all
cases, but that's what it does. It confuses someone with a bad leg with
one of Elvis's stage costumes.
I also notice certain idiosyncrasies in the Commonwealth (UK,
Australian) voices, which I suppose the programmer thinks are
typical--placing R's where they don't belong in certain situations (some
of you will remember JFK's adding an R to Cuba in certain situations).

I appreciate your comments. I had heard that F S was supposedly

combination. I will give 2 examples.
Both the voices Tom and Samantha mis sp eak some words ending in hard
consonants followed by words beginning with vowels like these 2 word
So I was simply attempting to do what was suggested--nothing more.
One person pointed out words beginning with"
We will be stuck with this vocalizer synthesizer for sometime.
Have a fine day.

Your research is laudable, but expecting that the problem lies withuntil
the last 3 numbers which are 7 then 50 and then 6.3-syllable
words in sentences with lots of punctuationlike commas and dashes.
easiest to listen to for long time periods.
