Amazing Voice

Well, I shouldn't have any problem with learning Irish and its sounds! Awesome voice....I love humans. ;)

Great to hear your thoughts Alexis! We are very happy its clarity too :)


I know that voice! I can't quite place it, but it's super familiar.

It's not just the fact that's it's clear, too. I love having a voice that really speaks the language with emotion! Having her actually sound upset for "How am I?" or "I'm not a man!" is really nice coming from a sometimes comically emotionless TTS engine.


It almost sounds like there are two different speakers, though it could be just a lot of inconsistency in her pronunciation.

For example, in this sentence she pronounces the "ch" in "buachaill as a hard c ("boo-kill"), whereas it should be pronounced like this sentence.

Just an observation! Really enjoying the course so far.


Pretty sure they are the same person though.


Id say the voice actress who did these was possibly from around the midlands or somewhere without a strong focus on irish. Most people here in the midlands say their buachaill like that unless a person is taking the piss out of a strong irish accent (my hatred on irish listening tests. Ulster accent sweetmercifulgod)


Great voice, love the drama in some of the sentences, but ... dinnéar = "die'nair"? Where is that from?


I wasn't sure if it was just one voice... I could have sworn there were actually 2 different ones. But yes, it's so lovely:-)


I agree, it is a lot easier to understand. :)
