I know that English language represent a challenge when it
comes to how synthesizers pronounce homophones, but I believe
I was misunderstood.
want is someone willing to share their default.jfd file, of
course, assuming that as an native English speaker has already
added the correct pronunciation in many cases.
example, if you guys try to read the following word using
eloquence, and then try to read it using vocalizer, you'll
notice the difference.

Interestingly, my Dectalk Express
synthesizer read “read” correctly both times in your example,
that is, present tense first, then past tense. Whoever is
behind this engine, or possibly the JAWS pronunciation itself,
figured out a way to tell a synthesizer when to read certain
words a certain way. Not all words work as well. “Polish”
comes to mind. Whether it’s the surface smoother or a person
from Poland, the pronunciation is the same.
of the problem could be the weird issue in the English
language of spelling words the same but having a
different pronunciation depending on where the word is
used. Unfortunately a screen reader can only have one
way of pronouncing these word so they pick the most
is you might read a text today or you may have read it

Would someone share a default.jdf file, please?
I like to use
eloquence synthesizer because it’s very responsive,
and I’m used to it. However, if you use this voice on
a regular basis, you’ll have probably noticed that
eloquence awkwardly mispronounce lots of words, some
of them very common words. So, I wonder if someone has
a default dictionary for jaws that is willing to
share. Besides, given that I’m not a native English
speaker, all too often I can’t figure out how a word
is accurately pronounced.
If someone could
share with me their default.jdf file, I’d really
Tanks in advance
