I was trying to get my rhasspy to switch input from various game consoles to either my tv or pc. While doing that I stumbled over something of a problem that ended with me trying to teach rhasspy the pronunciation of “playstation”. All guesses weren’t even close and I personally can’t even guess at how to fix it. The guide that lists phenomens with words is English, and I would need to guess at how those words are pronounced before even trying.
My problem in this case was the “station” part which is pronounced differently in German.
Now there are quite a few words that are used regularly that keep the English pronounciation and I don’t think German is the only language that does this. And English is not the only language that a pronounciation is needed from so I though it could be possible to select the pronounciation language in a dropdown menu of the words page, have it download the pronounciation table for the selected language if needed and then look up words in different languages. Or maybe just host a web service that can do that, that would negate the need of having to download the pronounciation table for a whole language if only one word needs to be looked up.
Any input on if this idea is possible/needed would be nice
