Comment: I don't see the need for all the 'training'... (Score 1) 171

...as there exists already an international phonetic alphabet, an alphabet that includes annotations for lilts, gutteral intonations and such. Why not just add the IPA pronunciation of each word to a given language dictionary, and have the computer read that? This would greatly reduce the 'training' work needed by the end user. It would also open new possibilities for text-to-speech translation, or even speech-to-speech translation.

To date I have found no text-to-speech reader on any platform that can understand (and speak) IPA symbols.
