Hi everyone... Hope it's ok to post this here, the Welsh team shared a short video of some testing on their Facebook group.

I'm excited!!

Impressive that they found a Welsh TTS - I wouldn't have thought one even existed.

And they confirmed that whilst the voice is more south than north in pronunciation, the course includes both south and north Walian forms - quote from team: "Questions (english-welsh) will accept as many dialectical forms as we can add, we've combined the two main North and South Wales courses, there aren't many units which need to introduce different north and south wales forms but where necessary we have done so."

The voice sounds like IVONA's Gwyneth:

Yeah probably, he said they were using an IVONA voice (ivona has 2 Welsh voices apparently).

How come there are Welsh TTS available but no Irish? Or did the Irish team choose not to use one?

(P.S. also excited to hear the new Irish voice... Fingers crossed it sounds more like an Irish speaker!)
