I don’t believe that the text to sound is accurate here… in particular i don’t believe that there is as much liaison between the two first words as I hear here.

Hi,

Thanks for reaching out! Is it just this phrase or you’re referring to the accuracy of the text to speech for Romanian, in general?

Thank you,

How do i find the Romanian text to speech? It would be better for you to get a response from a native speaker, but i would say it’s generally pretty good, maybe about 95% of the time, and that’s not too surprising because Romanian, compared to some languages, gives stress marks and the spelling leads pretty logically to pronunciation. But the weaknesses i have heard are not usually within a word, but generally relate to the liaison between words and the stress of the whole sentence. Occasionally i hear pronouns get a big stress in the sentence, and this should normally not be the case. In this sentence, in my opinion, the biggest stress should be the “LEG” syllable, with a secondary stress in the next word, pronounced “re - ti - CHEN - tsa” . The way I heard it on July 25 threw me off totally. I’m not sure how your text to speech programming works, but if nouns and verbs were globally given a stress higher than pronouns and prepositions, it might improve things a little.
