Russell: If you want it to work properly, you would have to allow the user to manually select a voice with the proper nationality. Otherwise, if you have just an American voice, it can only produce American English sounds. The website ipa-reader.xyz tries to do this, but they don't have enough nationalities.

Works fine but says k instead of ç (cue instead of hue).

It's good in concept, however I wouldn't use this with languages apart from English, in fact I suspect it is't even designed to work with other languages that aren't English. There are many pronunciation errors, such as follows: - diacritics are ignored: e.g. no nasals, vowel lowering, aspiration, palatalisation, or any other suprasegmental - multiple sounds are blatantly incorrect -> /k, g, x, ɣ/ were all pronounce /k/ Overall, it's a decent tool but only for English and I think that should...

Works fine but pronounces ç like k (BE/AE pronunciation of hue vs cue).

Does exactly what it says -- this is amazing for people like me who can never remember their IPA characters.
