FYI: About gloves in "Clothes" skill
The Swedish words for glove/gloves are handske/handskar. Unfortunately they are not correctly pronounced. The voice is pronouncing "sk" like "sk" in "sked" (spoon) or "skj" in "skjorta" (shirt), if you are familiar with those words.
Anyway, it should be "s" + "k" as in "scarface".
The bug is reported and I hope it can be fixed :).
Handske, along with about 100 other words, has been disabled. However, that only means that you won't receive any hearing exercises involving the word. We can unfortunately not disable it completely. We know about these problems and the only thing we can do is to replace the TTS-system.
Handske is terrible, but wait until you reach "racket"! I've had nightmares about that pronunciation!
Well, we do know all the pronunciation errors (I went through every single sentence and disabled bad ones before the release), but it is good to know where we have issues. It is just so frustrating, because (a) we cannot really do anything about it, more than noting it & (b) all the reports about the bad TTS really mess with our metrics, which in turn delays the app release...
Racket should be pronounced as it is written but the TTS says "Rejschet". No idea why!
Well, the question is, does Ivona make errors as frequently as the current TTS? Not just by sheer amount of words, but also by how frequently those words will be encountered. After all, the current TTS pronounces "de" wrong, and that is a word one is bound to hear over and over again. If Ivona makes errors on very specific words that are not all that common, that would probably be quite an acceptable trade off.
