Correcting Pronunciation

Although the quality of speech synthesis is constantly improving, pronunciation of words or phrases is not always satisfactory, especially for unfamiliar proper names, date formats, abbreviations, acronyms, etc. ReadSpeaker’s team of linguists can provide pronunciation corrections as a service to our customers. With the use of general and customer specific dictionaries, our linguists can correct mispronunciations and misinterpretations.
